Uganda’s leading band group known as Afrigo Band was supposed to perform at the Uganda Canada Convention in Ottawa on 3rd July, but could not manage to make it.
In a written statement, the band apologized for not being able to make it to the country because their visas were approved late. They hinted that they could not book their flights in time.
“Despite applying for the visas in may, we did not get the notification of the approval until June 29, 2021. This disrupted our travel bookings despite the organizers making every effort that included flying to Nairobi to get the stickers in time,” they wrote.
They promised to pay back their fans in an American tour that would cover Ottawa, Toronto, Edmonton and Vancouver.
