The organisers of The Soul R&B Safari Uganda Baileys Picnic, sponsors and partners are bitterly disappointed by the singer’s decision to pull out of the event where she was the headliner performer.
The group released an official statement regarding the matter yesterday accusing the singer of not consulting them before going public. Below is the full statement;
It’s been brought to the attention of the Soul-R&B Safari and to the Sponsors and Partners, that there is a social media post by Ms. Juliana Kanyomozi stating that she’s pulled out of the Soul-R&B Safari.
We categorically state that the organisers and sponsors did not receive so much as a courtesy phone call from the Artiste nor her management before they posted this statement on social media.
Ideally, it should have been the event organisers to release this statement, not the Artiste who was already financially committed and booked to feature at the festival.
Ideal protocol should have been we being informed first, then given the chance to settle and fill in these missing “gaps in alignment”, or whatever it is she says or feels wasn’t already aligned.
We did everything we were asked to do before we organised the press conference to launch the event. Indeed, the artiste addressed the press conference, committing to perform. We are shocked and disappointed by the sudden change of heart.
However, the Music must play on regardless of this unfortunate occurrence.
We shall soon announce other exciting Artistes to join BlackRoots Academy Of Soul as joint headliners of The Soul-R&B Safari Baileys Picnic, taking place on Saturday 07th May 2022 at Kampala Serena Hotel Gardens.
We sincerely regret any inconvenience caused; it wasn’t our intention nor doing.
Thank you for your patience and understanding.
