Renowned video jokey VJ Junior real name Mary Smarts Matovu is on the spot over snubbing a school event compelling kids to destroy property.
Vj Junior is one of the celebrated video jockeys in Uganda, who have stood the taste of time in translating English movies into Luganda.
Mastering his craft has seen him bag gigs countrywide, including the one he snubbed on Sunday 09th July 2023 at St Jude Secondary School in Masaka.
According to a promoter, Didas Ssekiwunga of Didas Events, he acknowledged VJ Junior reaching the school on time, but he was advised to wait until the visitation Day ends before he could commence with his movie translating event.
However, for reasons best known to him, Vj Junior traced the school exit and returned to Kampala with his team.
While taking part in an interview, the promoter claimed that over 1,400 students became irate upon learning that VJ Junior was a no-show at the event, and a stampede ensued as they rioted and demanded their money.
He filed a police case under reference 38/11/07//2023, in an effort to get justice. Didas urged VJ Junior to refund his money because he had cleared him to zero balance, and he will have to apologize to the school administration for the disappointment.
In his defence, VJ Junior revealed that he arrived at the school on time and waited for more than five hours since the promoter had not set the equipment for the event yet he had other events to render his services to.
VJ Junior stated that he is prepared to provide a statement to the police and provide his account of events.
