“THANKS TO THE ALMIGHTY GOD I am back home now and spending time with my 👪 family, thank you all for the support, physical and online. Thanks for highlighting our plight. Thank y’all 🙏 .

The Vidole hit-maker was taken in for mandatory quarantine after being arrested for violating curfew orders, while going to get medication for his sickly wife.
According to him, his car broke down while on the way home, which is what delayed him from getting home on time to beat the curfew.
He was however, released on Wednesday evening after an uproar by netizens over his arrest.
The news of his release was announced by activist Boniface Mwangi who was also the first person to disclose that he had been arrested.
“Eko Dydda was released today. Thank you to everyone who worked behind the scenes to ensure he was released. Let’s make it the norm, to call out injustices when they happen. To the good people in government who did the right thing, we appreciate you too,” reads a tweet from Boniface Mwangi.
