A mega deal worth sh100m is set to go up in smoke following the breakup of the Eagle's production band.

The deal, that was brokered by breakaway member Geoffrey Lutaaya and Balamu Barugahare, is said to be the source of confusion among members of Eagles production, now rebranded Golden Productions.

Reports indicate the deal, which was brokered during the Lutaaya's wedding preparations to Irene Namatovu early this year, rubbed Eagles' production manager Moses Kavuma who owns KT Productions that usually organises these gigs.

The move to rebrand the band is seen as a measure to frustrate Luataaya's deal. However Balamu penned the deal knowing all original band members including Lutaaya, Irene Namatovu, Misach Ssemakula, Ronald Mayinja, Catherine Kusaasira, Sserugga, Nantume and Stecia Mayanja would be part of the gig that stretches over the Easter weekend in April.

Lutaaya says Kavuma's move to break up the band at this crucial moment is only breeding problems for them.

On hearing the developments at Eagles' production, Balamu said: "My money is not for playing games; I penned a deal with the whole band and Lutaaya signed on its behalf. I have already written to them to refund my money."

MTN deal under review

The split of Eagles' production has also their major sponsor MTN reviewing their contract. The Corporate Affairs Manager MTN Justine Ntabgoba says they have instructed their lawyers to review the current running contract with Eagles production.

Unlike the split from the group by former members Sophie Nantongo, Haruna Mubiru Kitooke, Charles Ssekyewa and John Hill Kyobe, this time round the band name has been altered and the departure of directors such as Lutaaya could complicate any corporate arrangements.

Kavuma however says all running contracts under Eagles' production will go directly under Golden Productions.
