Namubiru travelled to Japan last Thursday for a music concert at the Golden Holy Week.Apart from performing at the concert, Namubiru had hoped to meet Ugandans living in Japan. The concert was scheduled to take place at the Yotsukaido Cultural Hall.

Sources say that the promoter of the show identified as Kim Ueno was not someone that could be trusted, but Namubiru did not take heed like other musicians, Dj Michael and Hildaman who cancelled the deal.

The incident comes against the backdrop of the arrest of former Ugandan minister Isaac Musumba, MP Michael Mawanda and a Kampala businessman in India over attempted extortion.

Drug trafficking attracts the death penalty in Japan.
