Despite the fact that he wasn’t there at the awarding night of world’s biggest kids’ choice awards that is to say, ‘Nickelodeon Kids’ Choice Awards 2018‘ that took place on Saturday night the 24th of March at The Forum in Inglewood, California USA, 2015 BET award winner singer Eddy Kenzo real name Ediriisa Musuuza made Uganda proud again after he was named the ‘Favourite African Star.
The news of his nomination in these awards excited his fans like a month ago and he faced competition from other celebrated African stars like female athlete Cater Semenya (South Africa), Davido (Nigeria), comedian Emmanuella (Nigeria), Diamond Platnumz (Tanzania) and rapper Casper Nyovest (South Africa). Kenzo however managed to beat all these to the award.
“Congratulations Uganda, Congratulations East Africa, Congratulations Africa, Congratulations Eddy Kenzo team eddy kenzo #WeDidit I’m speechless.” Kenzo shared his excitement on social media

Eddy Kenzo left the country for abroad last week and many thought he had actually travelled to attend the Kids’ Choice Awards’ but he had instead travelled for his ‘Eddy Kenzo Live In Amsterdam’ concert that happened on the same day with these awards.
Winning this award is a big milestone for the ‘Sitya Loss’ singer basing on the fact that these awards are record holding worlds’ biggest kids’ choice awards where it is strictly kids who vote their favourite people in the different award categories.
This award follows the Black Entertainment Television (BET) ‘Viewers Choice Award’ Kenzo won in 2015, and a few days ago, he was also named as ‘African Best Entertainer’ at the 36th International Reggae and World Music Awards’ (IRAWMA’s).
As Chano8 we say “big congratulations Kenzo and keep raising the Ugandan flag high”
