When musician Ykee Benda featured Jason Derulo on the World Cup song, “Colours”, word started going round that he would perform at the World Cup closing ceremony. However, as d-day drew closer, it certainly became apparent that he was not on the line up of performing artistes.

Although he watched the World Cup final live in Russia, he has not escaped criticism and mockery from a section of the public. He has now finally come out to clarify on what happened. “I did not perform at the World Cup closing ceremony because of contractual limitations. I was invited by Coca-Cola, but the World Cup is organised by FIFA who had their own plans.”

“But even when I did not perform at the finals, it was still a win for Uganda because I raised the Ugandan flag high. It was also a dream come true for me to watch the World Cup finals live because I am a big football fan.”
