A UPDF officer, Capt. Sam Okia and artiste Moses Sserwadda aka Sweet Kid nearly fought yesterday over ownership of a recording studio on Lumumba Avenue at Nakasero in Kampala.
Okia said the studio, D. Records, is solely owned by his son Allan Okia, who is now in the US.
Sweet Kid, however, said he bought the studio from its rightful owner, Dennis Muwonge. But the two could not show papers relating to the ownership.
â€œI canâ€™t allow you to take my sonâ€™s property. That is why I have closed the premise,â€ Okia said.
â€œWhere have you obtained a court order to close our studio? You donâ€™t have a background to the ownership of this property,â€ Sweet Kid told Okia.
Muwonge said Allan was merely an employee who owned some equipment in the company.
He read an email from Allan to the captain saying: â€œHi dad, I want my speakers, snake cable, head phones, sound card and my photo board. Thatâ€™s all. Please leave Dennisâ€™ computer the way it is. Dennis and Sweet Kid are my friends.â€
The captain maintained that he would not open the studio until his son returns in December.
