Swangz Avenue, the recording label under which female musician, Winnie Nwagi is signed, has issued a public apology regretting the conduct of the singer during her recent performance at St Mary’s College Kisubi.
The ‘Mataala’ singer was recently hired alongside budding musician, John Blaq to perform at St Mary’s during an event.
However, videos later emerged showing Nwagi dancing in what some people on social media considered indecent to school-going boys. For days, the singer has suffered a backlash on social media with critics attacking her for this conduct.
In the video, the singer is seen dancing very closely with a boy (with his back on the wall). But the seemingly impressed student then jumps in excitement thereafter as he leaves the stage. In other scenes, Nwagi’s dancers can be seen twerking before students, rubbing their bums against the boys amid cheering from the onlooking audience.
Now, her Management, Swangz Avenue, has posted an apology on its Facebook regretting the “inappropriate performance”.
“We deeply regret the inappropriate performance by Winnie Nwagi at St Mary’s College Kisubi on July 13th, ” Swangz Avenu wrote on Monday.
The record label said it has investigated the incident and “measures have been put in place to avoid a repeat of the same”.
It says the conduct of Winnie Nwagi was “a huge error in judgment” and that 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”.
The songstress has not come out to comment on the incident since it happened.
However, some of the comments on the post by Swangz Avenue defended Nwagi, saying there was no need to apologize since she was hired to entertain the students and that there are numerous ways a crowd can be entertained.
