Fresh details have since emerged how President Museveni brokered peace between Esther Nabaasa with Richard Kaweesa. According to reliable info the President agreed to compensate the complainant in the copyright ownership of the official 50th Independence Golden jubilee song ‘Yoga Yoga Uganda’, Esther and her hubby Mugisha with a bounty sum of Shs500m.
According to reliable info, in a meeting chaired by his Excellency at State House, Nakasero before Independence, Museveni told an excited Esther that she would be compensated. He even ordered his aides to make sure the money is wired to her account.
Represented by their lawyers of Karuhanga, Tabaro & Associates, Esther and hubby had dragged Kaweesa to court for what they termed as “Copyright Infringement of Yoga Yoga.”
And Commercial court’s Justice Wilson Musalu had decided to slap an injunction barring anyone to use the song in any form until the two parties (Esther Nabaasa and Richard Kaweesa) had resolved their dispute.
It was no wonder after the meeting with M7 that a visibly excited Esther immediately updated her facebook status that; “The Yoga Yoga conflict resolved at last. Never be afraid to stand up for yourself and for what is right and true. One can never put a price on truth and integrity, and we must strive to preserve that always. And when someone wrongs you and they take responsibility and apologize with sincerity be willing to forgive and forge ahead. This is the example I would like to set.
Happy Jubilee celebrations everyone!”
Esther later performed the song at Kololo Airstrip on Independence day with a huge smile cutting across her lips well aware at the back of his mind that her account balance was also smiling.
