Geoffrey Lutaaya and the other members who broke away from Eagles Production to form Golden Band have come to a general consensus. All the ex-members will perform in the four shows dubbed; 'Bye-Bye Eagles' in May 2014. Proceeds from the shows will go towards settling the Shs 320 million Balaam was demanding from Eagles Production that has since split.
The two parties were in Nakawa court yesterday. Lutaaya and the Golden Band members were asked to show cause why they should not pay the Shs 320m as required by promoter Balaam. Through their lawyers, the two parties asked for a closed session, which was granted. They later came back to court with a common position that was agreeable to both parties. Balaam has since withdrawn the case.
Music pundits say this was the best way to settle this matter other than going through the tedious court process. Balaam had promised to attach their houses and hotels had the interest accumulated to over Shs 600 million.
One of the Golden Band members who was asking her fans to pray for her before the court process can now breathe a sigh of relief. "Finally, we are done, thanks for your prayers. I already have more than enough debts," Catherine Kusasira wrote on her wall.
