Award-winning singer Eddy Kenzo was recently nominated in the AFRIMMA Awards for the Best East African Male Artist alongside the likes of Ali Kiba and Diamond Platnumz and others.

To the shock of many, a small section of Ugandans was advocating for a boycott on voting Eddy Kenzo because of his political affiliation.

They instead asked fellow Ugandans to vote for Diamond Platnumz.

In response, Eddy Kenzo said it was their choice and they had a right to vote for whoever they wanted since it has always been either him or Diamond Platnumz.

The BET Award Winner’s manager Muhumuza Beta has also responded by saying it is not a shock because Ugandans have always voted for Eddy Kenzo’s opponents but it has never stopped him from winning because he is blessed.
