News reaching our platform says that 15 renowned Ugandan Artists are shedding buckets of tears after they were denied visas to the United Kingdom, where they were slated to perform at an event dubbed Summer Bash 2024, which was to be held on Saturday, July 6th, 2024, in London, at the Royal Regency Hall.

Credible sources reveal that the show has since been cancelled after the artists failed to secure UK visas from the British High Commission Visa Handling Agency TLS in Bukoto, along Kiira Road.

Additionally, some of the artists who were denied visas include Lil Pazo, Khalifa Aganaga, Fik Gaza, Feffe Busi, Acidic Vocals, Karole Kasita, and others.

Furthermore, reports indicate that the event organizers, Global Talent Promotion, a company owned by Ugandan couple Fred and Beckie, were left financially paralyzed since they had booked the venue and paid deposits to all the artists.

It is said that the artists failed to get the visas after the UK Home Visa Decision Making Office assessed them and discovered that they lacked relevant ties that could enable them to return to Uganda after their show in London.

The ties that are considered by the Visa Decision Making Office in Sheffield, UK, include things like a stable family, properties to one’s name, and financial capability, as evidenced by a recent bank statement, plus a flourishing music career in the Ugandan music industry.

In conclusion, the organizers of the event are currently choking on debt after the show got cancelled because the artists were denied visas.
