At the end of the program, the show host, Ugandan-born American journalist Shaka Ssali could not end the show minus asking the Umqombothi star about her last trip to Uganda.

VOA's Shaka Ssali interviews Yvone Chaka Chaka on Straight Talk Africa
Abtex pay me my money!!!
"By the way, before I forget, Is it true that you were in fact deported from Uganda last December?" Shaka asked.
"I don't think I was deported, I decided to leave in fact, the promoter owes me my money. I want the promoter to pay me my money," Yvone replied.
"A company which was called uhhmm... I can't even remember the name of the company, but the guy who invited me was called Junior and Abtex was the company."
Shaka asked Yvone what exactly she wanted the Abitex managers to do...
In his usual style, Shaka Ssali signed off..."On that note Yvone Chaka Chaka, I must say once again that I was profoundly honored and exceedingly humbled to have had the opportunity to interact with you for the past one hour and I also take this opportunity to thank you for your service to the people of Africa and indeed the world."
Yvone Chaka Chaka real name Yvone Machaka thanked all who were watching and reminded them never to take anything for granted.
Events promoter Abbey Musinguzi aka Abtex was the one in charge of the end of year Enkuuka concert that had the Buganda King attending, but unfortunately, the South African singer did not perform as authorities picked her up from her hotel room straight to the airport.
This was her take then.
"Hello this is me, I just want to set he record straight... I took the decision not to appear at the Enkuuka because there were just too many things that I could not understand or explain. I have not been arrested, not been deported, not captured I am fine, but I will not be appearing at the Enkuuka this evening because I want things to be done correctly"
