No one saw it coming until the Grammy award winning rapper posted photos of himself and the mother passionately embracing hundreds of children in northern Uganda.
As many of his fans debated on whether the star really stepped foot in Uganda unnoticed, The Usual Suspects, one Lecrae’s Africa tour event key organisers confirmed the development. “Yes, Lecrae was in Uganda on a private excursion,”
Lecrae posted on Facebook, “Took my mama to the motherland.”
It is said the duo also visited South Africa.
The gospel rapper – to many Christians in Uganda – is a true definition of a success story in the music world. He performs to packed venues all around the world and has sold millions of album and owned the charts.
His songs have owned the Christian-specific singles rankings, and he has already won several Grammys. He is the only rapper working in Christian music to earn a Grammy nomination in the rap field in addition to those he’s collected in the religious verticals.
Last month ending, the rapper issued a statement saying his planned African tour has been postponed “due to unforeseen circumstances.”
New dates were issued, and hundreds of Ugandans who had secured their tickets for his event at Lugogo Hockey grounds assured they will be valid on the D-Day, now 24th August, 2018.
On their part, Fresh Impressions, all local partners and promoters in various countries affected committed to giving fans of Lecrae “an amazing, fulfilling and memorable experience.”
“All tickets already purchased will be valid for the new dates. However, should one choose to; their tickets will be refunded at the cost price,” a statement from the event management company read.
