“The award will be for East Africa,” Kenzo unmoved by Ugandans vowing to vote for Diamond in AFRIMMA

Published

Arguably Uganda’s best music industry export BET award winner, Edris Musuuza a.k.a Eddy Kenzo earlier this week was among the seven Ugandans that scooped nominations in the 7th edition of the African Music Magazine Awards (AFRIMMA) that will take place in Dallas, Texas on November 15 2020.

However, with the current toxic blend of politics and the entertainment industry in Uganda, People Power movement/ National Unity Platform supporters vowed not to vote for Kenzo since they accuse him of having betrayed the struggle by ‘going to bed’ with the regime.

A section of the supporters have instead declared to vote for Tanzania’s Diamond Platnumz for the Best Male East Africa category.

Nevertheless the self-proclaimed ‘Kaana Kambata’ seems unbothered as he said those threatening not to vote for him have been haters since he made his breakthrough in the industry. He said they are only using politics as an excuse.

“I don’t support anyone in politics; I’m independent and a tourism ambassador. All I want for my country is peace,” Kenzo said.

Kenzo said being nominated in such prestigious international awards is enough indicator that he’s a winner and people are free to vote whoever they want.

“It is up to the people to vote Diamond or me because he is also East African. I have no problem with that, after all, it has always been me or him,” he said.

Other Ugandans that were nominated include; Sheebah Karungi and Vinka for the Best Female East Africa accolade, Masaka Kids Africana for the Best African Dancer, Keko for Best Female Rap Act, Sasha Vybz for Best Video Director and James Onen for Radio/TV Personnel Of The Year.
