But this was cancelled at the eleventh hour.

At the same time, though, there is the possibility that the deportation of Chaka Chaka may have been in some way related to her outspoken support for that country's opposition politician and musician, Bobi Wine.

According to Eyewitness News, South African musician Yvonne Chaka Chaka was detained by immigration officials for not having the correct working visa.

Mr Enanga said immigration officials cancelled Chaka Chaka's ordinary visa after realising she travelled to perform at New Year events.

"She was advised along with her promoters to apply for a working visa to perform a working visa for her music performance and avoid the pretense of being an ordinary visitor which can not enable her to perform in any income generating activities within the country". "This has been done by immigration officials and the security team to help maintain the integrity of our immigration rules".

Her phone was confiscated and she was not allowed to communicate with anyone, not even Abitex who organized the show.

Yvonne Chaka Chaka has responded to the police's claims that she was deported and says that she is still in Uganda but chose not to perform. "It was a decision that I took to say that I will not be appearing at Enkuuka and I decided that wanted to come back home". According to PML Daily, authorities cordoned off the hotel and "ordered her to stop her rehearsal".

While in Kampala previous year, Chaka Chaka referred to opposition activist Bobi Wine as Uganda's Nelson Mandela.

It is thought that the singer was placed in bad books after she heaped praises to Bobi Wine past year during her performance at Kampala Serena Hotel, where she referred to him as the new Nelson Mandela. The charity concert organised by Shule Foundation was aimed at raising funds to build a school for former street kids.

Bobi Wine himself has been banned from performing in Uganda since 2018 with Museveni claiming that he keeps telling the global community that Uganda has been run down and the people have become poorer.

In a separate post, the legendary singer uploaded a video of herself assuring her family and fans that she was in flawless shape but could not understand what was going on as no one had taken the time to enlighten her on the day's happenings. Chaka Chaka and her team reportedly failed to comply which prompted authorities to deport her. I'm not in any danger, I'm actually very, very fine.
