Ugandan singer went berserk during a stage performance in South Sudan after a fan assaulted her sexually.

Fans were singing along to her song when a man on the front stretched out his hand to touch Vinka’s private parts.

An agitated Vinka acted promptly by kicking the fan twice with her feet before a cameraperson on stage held her.

The musician then went on with her performance as security personnel handled the ill-mannered man.

Veronica Luggya alias Vinka embarked on her first music tour in South Sudan after a year’s break from music to attend to her baby.

Female artists have fallen victim to sexual harassment on stage from male fans who want to satisfy their sexual desires in the wrong manner.

This behavior should not be tolerated because when an artist takes to the stage, they are up to entertaining fans. Their body should not be the focus, rather their music.

Fans have shown aggressiveness by not only physical touch but also making sexual comments on the singers.

After her performance at the One Africa Music Festival in 2018, Musician Akothee was subjected to cyberbullying and sexual harassment over her dress code.

Her choice of costume and dance moves during her performance at London’s Wembley stadium sparked criticism from fans.

However, the mother of five downplayed the mean comments, asking the trolls to unfollow her since she doesn’t intend to be a role model.

Netflix has announced their plans for a Bridgerton spin-off which will focus on a young Queen Charlotte.

Queen Charlotte – played by Golda Rosheuvel – stole the show during the eight episodes of drama released last December.

And now, fans will get to see the rise of the Queen as well as get a look at young Violet Bridgerton and Lady Danbury.

“Many viewers had never known the story of Queen Charlotte before Bridgerton brought her to the world, and I’m thrilled this new series will further expand her story and the world of Bridgerton,” explained Netflix’s Bela Bajaria in a statement.

“Shonda and her team are thoughtfully building out the Bridgerton universe so they can keep delivering for the fans with the same quality and style they love.”

She continued: “And by planning and prepping all the upcoming seasons now, we also hope to keep up a pace that will keep even the most insatiable viewers totally fulfilled.”

Meanwhile, it was recently announced that the hit show was renewed for a season three and four.

Netflix announced the good news on Twitter last month, stating: “Breaking news from the ton! Bridgerton is returning for seasons three *AND* four!”

Producer Shonda Rhimes revealed: “From the first time I read Julia Quinn’s delicious Bridgerton series, I knew these were stories that would captivate a viewing audience.

“But the evolution of this adaptation would not be a success without the many significant contributions of the entire Shondaland team.”
