It's taken a week for singer Desire Luzinda to make a statement on the nud# photos that were leaked on the internet and spread on social media.
Highlights of Desire LUZINDA's apology:
"To all my fans in Uganda and all over the world, as you might be aware, there has been a lot of fanfare and discussion in the media and social media about my photos taken in private that were leaked to the public by a jilted lover."
The photos which showed the singer's face in a jovial mood as they were being shot plus other poses surfaced online last Friday but by Saturday evening, the pics had gone viral.

"The facts about this matter are that these were photos taken in privacy with someone I loved. In our private moments, we all have our “moments of madness”. The bottom line is that I trusted this person and never hoped that something done in private would find its way to the public domain irrespective of our differences.

In Desire's apology, she says this was a breach of trust.
"I want to sincerely apologise to my mother, to my daughter, to my family, to my friends, my fans and any other people who have been offended by these images. Like I said, this was a breach of trust by someone I loved. I take full responsibility for having lost my mind to take such shameful pics. This person has not only abused that trust but now seeks to drag me down."
I'm a decent person, a mother and industrious woman, so these images in no way should define who I am. To all my fans who have stood by me in this period asking me to be firm amidst the tempest, a big thank you, Desire concluded.
