Singer Jamal Wasswa and his management have thumped and arrested the manager of his longtime impersonator.
Over the years, the yet-to-be-identified Jamal Wasswa impersonator has been obtaining money from events promoters in the guise of being the Omusomesa singer.
This saw Jamal Wasswa file a police case in 2022, and he has been on the hunt for the man in question all this time.
On the fateful day, the impersonator was booked to perform in Mukono-Seeta, at a price tag of Ugx 500K and Ugx 200K was paid upfront as a booking fee.
Before the performance, the promoter noticed that the man to whom he had given the money wasn’t Jamal but rather an impostor.
The promoter was quick to tip Jamal’s management, who responded swiftly and tricked the criminals into picking their Ugx 300K balance before they could render the service at the then impending event.
On their arrival, arrest was initiated, and the impostor jumped the perimeter fence before fleeing into the nearby bushes, but his alleged manager was not able to do the same.
