Singer Gravitty Omutujju has publicly apologized for uttering sentiments that were deemed unethical and promoted gender-based violence.
On Thursday evening, singer Gereson Wabuyi alias Gravitty Omutujju’s name started trending online for supporting fellow singer Weasel’s actions of domestic violence.
In the video, Gravitty, who was in an interview with Sanyuka TV, jokingly revealed that nothing feels good like seeing a woman cry after being battered.
The singer’s revelation, however, put him on the spot, as a section of internet users vowed to cancel him if he doesn’t publicly retract his statement.
To avoid consequences that might come with being cancelled, the singer was so quick to publicly apologize, noting that whatever he uttered in the trending video was a joke and he never meant it.
Gravitty maintained that he loves and respects his wife, and he can never raise his hand to beat up a woman.
Gravitty urged those who were offended by his reckless statement to find a soft spot in their hearts and forgive him.
Woke up this morning with numerous missed calls on my phone and many incoming ones from different people in concern of the interview I did with Kay’s – Whatever I said during that interview was a joke. I love and respect my woman and I can never and I have never raised my hands to beat any woman at any one point and I condemn it. My apologies to all Ugandans about the miss communication in that interview.
