Wine had earlier said he was placed under house arrest in an attempt to stop his Independence Day Concert. He later shared a video of himself hopping onto a motorbike surrounded by dozens of cheering supporters.He captioned the video, "Busabala Final destination," — the venue of his canceled concert.The Ugandan police on Tuesday said the concert was not approved because they did not have the manpower to provide security for those attending the show."We are unable to provide adequate security as police officers will be at the Independence Day celebrations in Sironko and other authorized venues," police spokesman Patrick Onyango said in a statement.However, Wine disagreed with police saying security personnel deployed to his homes could have been sent to the show instead."These are the same people who claimed not to have enough security to secure our people at the show.
