Television presenter of the Bwakedde-Wolokoso’ program on Star TV, has apologized for the drastic comments he made about musician Lydia Jazmine.
During one of the episodes of his show, Ibra attacked Jazmine’s personal life with various unpleasant comments about the relationship she is rumored to be having with fellow musician Fik Fameika.
In his words, Ibra said the two musicians don’t match at all as far as love is concerned. He added that if these two musicians are to have an offspring, he/she wouldn’t have any brains and would become a problem to the society since the mother (Jazmine) doesn’t not have the capability to even express herself in less than 5-7 minutes.
According to Ibra, people like Jazmine should be exempted from reproducing in order to avoid having a problematic generation of children in future.
The songstress didn’t take all this well and referred to it as cyber bullying, claiming it caused her and her family emotional damage.
She took to her social media pages saying: “I am hurt and pained by the way this man has constantly attacked me and dragged my name in the dirt. My sick mother, family and friends have been affected deeply by this. I don’t fight with people, all I do is my music and mind my own business. You all know me, I never respond or fight anybody, I have always kept my silence but I am human and this has brought so much pain to me. I ask for a full apology for all these insults. UCC needs to put a stop to such shows! Share this post until it gets to the people concerned!”
Recently, Ibra eventually decided to make a public apology to Jazmine on Facebook. He apologized for all the harm he brought to her and her family and also referred to her as someone that is incredibly talented humble and likeable.
His post read:
On Monday June 29, 2020 during the Bwakedde – Morning show hosted on Star TV, I made utterances against Artiste Lydia Jazmine that seem degrading, appalling and regrettable.
Am deeply sorry for offending you (Lydia Jazmine).
As my followers know, I never intend to attack any person(s) in any fraternity but sometimes we get things hastily and spectacularly wrong as it befell with Lydia Jazmine.
There is nothing more important to me than a thriving music industry and is why I tirelessly contribute to the fraternity though this time round it’s regrettable that I attacked and offended the Person of Lydia Jazmine.
Jazmine is incredibly talented, humble and likeable and honestly, deep down I would never wish bad things to her or any one for that matter and is why I wish to extend a genuine and public apology to Ms. Lydia Jazmine, her family, management, the music fraternity and all Ugandans for the harm caused.
In this business, all we can do is own up to our mistakes when they happen.
God bless you.
IBRAH .K. MUKASA”
