Eddy Kenzo who made Uganda proud by being the first East African artiste to win a BET award last year is further looking to add more accolades to his collection.
The Sitya Loss star has been nominated for five awards at the Uganda Entertainment awards 2016. The singer will have to battle it out for best East African Act with Ali Kiba, Sauti Sol, Diamond Platnumz and Vanessa Mdee, for artiste of the year, he’s up against Bebe Cool and Sheebah Karungi, best male artiste he will tussle it out with A Pass, David Lutalo, Radio and Weasel, best African Act he’s nominated with Yemi Alade, Diamond Platnumz, Korede Bello and Wizkid, and finally his song royal featuring Patoranking has also been nominated for best collaboration.
There is no doubt about Eddy Kenzo’s tenacity, his ambition has seen him push his career to greater heights against all odds. His ever growing fanbase not only in Uganda but Africa and the world at large is a real definition of where there is belief and hard work the possibilities are endless.
The Uganda entertainment awards are not only aimed at rewarding musicians’ but also sportsmen, deejays, actors, comedians, companies and mcees that have always been neglected on several occasions.
