Tems explained that without her prison experience, she wouldn’t have understood the conditions faced by prisoners. She emphasized that the experience was humbling.

“Prison was once in a lifetime experience that I actually feel honored to have had because otherwise, I would never have thought about these people, and to be in their presence was very humbling,” Tems told ES Magazine.

The incident dates back to December 12, 2020, when Tems and fellow artist Omah Lay were arrested and charged in Uganda for performing at a concert held at Speke Resort, Kampala, in violation of COVID-19 social distancing regulations. They spent two nights in jail before being granted bail.
