When Ugandan singer Rebecca Kwikiriza alias Chosen Becky arrived at O.R Tambo Airport in South Africa, she claims there was a miscommunication about her accommodations.
Chosen Becky, a popular Ugandan singer, was due to perform for her fans in South Africa on Nov. 6th, 7th, 12th, and 13th, 2021.
She was to perform for her fans in Randburg, Cape Town, Rusternburg, and Bloemfontein.
Despite the singer’s successful flight to South Africa, which has been a popular destination for many Ugandan performers in recent months, this did not happen.
When Chosen Becky arrived, there was an incident that made her journey deeper into S.A to halt.
According to previous reports, her work permit had issues. This, prompting authorities to place her on the next flight back to Uganda. Much like Fik Fameica, who was deported just a few weeks before.
The Bankuza singer admits the deportation rumours from the Mzansi republic in an official communication shared on her social media.
She did say, however, that it was due to a misunderstanding about her accommodations between S.A. Immigration officials and the hotel she had booked.
“To my fans in the Republic of South Africa As you may be aware, I was scheduled to meet you and perform in South Africa this month on the 6th, 7th, 12th, and 13th. Unfortunately, my travel to South Africa met obstacles when I arrived at O.R Tambo Airport on the 4th. Regarding my accommodation bookings, there was a miscommunication between South Africa’s Immigration officials at the O.R Tambo International Airport and the hotel where I was meant to stay.” Chosen Becky
She also revealed that the show’s promoters will reschedule another show for her in the near future to make up for the mishap.
“The promoters will reschedule my South Africa tour to a later date, which will be announced. I appreciate all the support, love, and care I have received from each of you since the breakout of these unfortunate events. I love you all in abundance,”
