On April 5, band singer, Mesach Semakula tendered in letter of resignation to Golden Band members informing them of his reasons to quit.

Semakula started with Eagles Production but after 20 years of music success, In 2014 the band broke up into two; with Geoffrey Lutaaya and wife Irene Namatovu forming Da New Eagles while Mesach Semakula, Ronald Mayinja, Catherine Kusasira, Stecia Mayanja, Grace Sekamatte, Fred Sseruga, Maureen Nantume and others decided to form Golden Band.

After 8 years of non stop entertainment, Semakula told his fellows that due to health complications he won’t be able to fulfill his obligations to the Golden Production as a shareholder and director.

Based on the resignation letter that his lawyers, Lukwago and Co. Advocates shared on social media, Semakula can no longer cope with the routine travels, practice, and many other things that the group requires him to do.

For that matter, since he is not in good health, he has opted to take a break from the band to help himself improve health wise.

‘Tukwegomba bangi’ hitmaker further states he has left the band in peace without having wrangles with anyone.
