Following reports that British band UB40 will not perform in Uganda, Ali Campbell, one of the founding member of the band says the show will happen.

The UB40 Feat Ali Campbell statement says Ali’s shows are clearly advertised as UB40 feat Ali Campbell and this will happen.

“It has continually come to our attention that Ali’s former band members and their current management are hell-bent on trying to stop UB40 Feat Ali Campbell from performing shows globally including Ali’s forthcoming show in UGANDA. For some time now, the promoters of Ali’s shows and TV stations have been flooded with calls and emails from the aforementioned that “UB40” will not be performing, citing that Ali Campbell has no legal right to use the name and threatening them with legal action, in a clear attempt to stop Ali performing.“

The statement further revealed that for the record, UB40 was a band that Ali started after receiving compensation from an injury he sustained, making him the founding member of the band.

They also added that when Ali Campbell put his band together, his goal and ambition was to take reggae music to the masses globally, something he has continuously achieved doing. Since leaving the original set up of UB40 not only has Ali continued to tour using the name UB40, he has also continued to release successful Top Ten albums-something which the former members of his band haven’t.
