Singer John Kasadha aka John Blaq has been making news after he showed up at Rema Namakula’s introduction ceremony, dressed in a casual shirt instead of a cultural wear.
Unlike fellow celebrities who came dressed in Kanzus and coats, John Blaq ‘graced’ this traditional function in jeans, casual shirt and bling hanging around his neck, something that forced social media ‘police’ to name him the overall worst dressed celebrity of the event.
Some critics alleged that maybe the ‘Bubadi’ singer did it on purpose to get media attention, since he is soon holding his maiden show dubbed Ayabass concert at Freedom City on November 29.
However, during an interview with a local media outlet, John Blaq defended himself, claiming that he didn’t show up dressed is causal wear to attract social media attention, but he thought he was smart enough for the event.
“I was not looking for attention, it’s the media that looked for me. I just wanted to attend the function and I thought I was smart. I am sorry if I was not smart enough before the people’s eyes,” he said.
The singer alleged that he had a Kanzu prepared for the day but he was caught up in traffic jam and couldn’t go back home to pick it, that why he chose to wear a shirt.
“I had arranged my Kanzu but couldn’t go back home to pick it. We had traveled somewhere and reached Kampala very late, I couldn’t go home because of the heavy traffic. The clothes I had on wouldn’t match at all so I decided to buy a shirt because I also wanted to be around at Rema’s function.”
The singer noted that he wasn’t trying to be disrespectful to anyone, more so Rema because he is her biggest fan and wanted to be counted among the people who performed during the function.
