- Eddy Kenzo to tussle it out with Bebe Cool at Africa Music Magazine Awards (AFRIMMA) 2018
- They scooped nominations in the category of ‘Best Male East Africa’
- The award night will take place on Sunday the 7th of October in Dallas, Texas.
A few days ago, organisers of the annual Africa Music Magazine Awards(AFRIMMA) released the 2018 nominees list ahead of awarding night of the awards’ 5th edition slated for Sunday the 7th of October in Dallas, Texas.
Different artistes in the Eastern, Western, Northern, Southern and Central regions of Africa were nominated in different categories but the category that caught our attention is ‘Best Male East Africa’ which has our very own Big Size Bebe Cool and Eddy Kenzo who will be tussling it out for one award
Despite the fact that they are competing against each other, the two are facing stiff competition from other artistes like Diamond Platnumz, Harmonise, Juma Jux, Alikiba and Ommy Dimpoz from Tanzania and Nyashinski, Khaligraph Jones, Sauti Sol from Kenya.
Although Bebe and Kenzo haven’t taken to social media to let fans know that they scooped nominations, voting is already ongoing as we wait for the awarding night to see who the best in each category will turn out to be.
Bebe Cool and Eddy Kenzo have not had a bad 2018. They both have new songs out which is also the reason they were nominated amongst the many. Kenzo is currently on his Canadian tour whereas Bebe is a busy head trying to make ends meet ahead of his Golden Heart concert on Friday the 3rd of August at Kololo Airstrip.
We are comfortable to say that artistes Bebe Cool and Eddy Kenzo are not seeing eye to eye. Their bad blood was mainly catalysed by the list made by Bebe bearing artistes he thought were the best in 2017 and Kenzo was not listed
