Singer Nakanwagi Winnie alias Nwagi and her management have apologized for the singer’s inappropriate performance at St Mary’s College Kisubi, an all-boys school.
Nwagi together with her backup dancers threw the students in a frenzy when they summoned the boys on stage and rub-dubbed them erotically. The performance did not leave behind the teachers, with each jumping on stage and getting a backside rub of Nwagi and her dancers.
The videos of their actions were prominently published on social media and critics had their share of reprove.
Swangz Avenue singer @NwagiWinnie did this to the students of St. Marys Kisubi over the weekend.
Critics argue that it’s improper conduct to students below the age of 18 and question her professionalism. But the boys seem to enjoy every bit of it.

Renown critic, Pastor Martin Sempa claimed that Nwagi’s actions of erotically arousing the boys would lead them into homosexuality.
“Is it in order to sexually inflame young men in a single-sex school like SMACK. Aren’t you contributing to the risk of homosexuality? Why do you punish these boys at this vulnerable stage? You get them sexually aroused but they have NO outlet,” Sempa insinuated.
Following the backlash, the singer and her management issued a statement citing the acts were regrettable and shouldn’t happen again.
“We deeply regret the inappropriate performance by Winnie Nwagi at St Mary’s College Kisubi on July 13th. We have investigated the incident and measures have been put in place to avoid a repeat of the same,” the statement reads in part.
“This was a huge error in judgment and both the Artist and the management team acknowledge the pain and mistrust caused by this incident. We apologize to the general public, parents of the students in attendance and the school administration,” the statement continues.
Meanwhile, the minister of ethics, Rev Fr Simon Lokodo has moved to stop artistes from performing at schools.
