SMACK S.6 Students are crying out over what they call an over-judgemental public. This follows the public’s reaction over Winnie Nwagi’s sensual performance and dabs during her concert in Kisubi.
Swangz Avenue was forced to apologize as a way of calming down everyone. But Smackists are clearly annoyed that Swangz is apologizing over what they termed as a normal performance at the school.
“We don’t see anything wrong. This is how concerts have always been at SMACK.That is how we dance with our female artistes. It doesn’t mean we are spoilt. It is just single boys having some fun. These people on social media just have kajanja. For us we had even already booked Winnie Nwagi for three other shows. We even want Desire Luzinda to do even more when she comes along,” the students revealed to us.
Here is the apology from Swang.
We deeply regret the inappropriate performance by Winnie Nwagi at St Mary’s College Kisubi on July 13th. We have investigated the incident and measures have been put in place to avoid a repeat of the same.
This was a huge error in judgment and both the Artist and the management team acknowledge the pain and mistrust caused by this incident. We apologize to the general public, parents of the students in attendance and the school Administration.
