O Boy’s album launch billed for Friday April 9 has suffered a big setback after police wrote to him Thursday informing him they could not grant him a permit.

In a letter seen by The Fatu Network, police told O Boy “your request cannot be granted at the moment as the stipulated date falls within the Covid-19 restriction period”.

It comes as the musician travelled to the police headquarters Thursday amid claims he was called for questioning. O Boy however told The Fatu Network he was going to the police headquarters at his own initiation.
