Ugandan dancehall artist Shafic Dangote, known as Fik Gaza, has been released after spending three days in a Saudi Arabia cell.

Gaza was reportedly arrested on Tuesday by Saudi authorities shortly after landing in the Gulf country.

It is unclear why he was arrested but some reports said he was detained over alleged visa irregularities and dress code violations.

Fellow musicians in Uganda condemned the arrest and called for his immediate release.

“Am Free. Thanks to everyone who worked so hard to get me out of jail,” Gaza posted on social media platform X.

Authorities in both Saudi Arabia and Uganda have not commented on the matter.

Gaza, who started his music career in 2018, gained popularity with hits like Digida, Wanika Ebango and Omwana Oyo.
