The Three are currently detained at Jinja Road Police Station to help with investigations.

“Our investigations show that the burglary was organized. At around 3:30am, thieves gained access into the house through the living room. They proceeded to a room where the gadgets were kept, packed everything and left the scene,” the statement showed.

After securing international copyright for all her music, http://couponsavingfamily.com/wp-admin/includes/schema.php singer Iryn Namubiru has come out and warned all those illegally in possession of her work to delete it and those that have illegally uploaded it online to pull it down with immediate effect lest they face the wrath of the law.

The singer who has always cried foul over piracy in the local music industry has disclosed that there are over 600 major violations that are currently under investigation by Interpol.

“At the moment, approved there are over 600 violations under investigation that are being or will be randomly acted on. In all honesty, shop I cannot and have no time to contact in person the people who have violated my copyright for many years. So again, mine is another public request that they stop and those who have uploaded my music pull it down immediately, “The singer said in an official statement seen by ChimpLyf.

She also said that she is trying to find a legal and professional way of distributing her music which she hopes will turn out to be a stepping stone for other musicians who have always wanted to do same but lacked a big name in the industry as an example.

It will be remembered that Iryn Namubiru recently signed a juicy deal with a top UK Ugandan talent Manager, Johnson Mujungu of Grajoh Talent Management and Public Relations Ltd who also manages the likes of Anne Kansiime and Eddy Kenzo.

Many musicians have already applauded her for leading the fight against piracy which has for long eaten up talent development in most parts of Africa.
