After he was announced the winner at the just concluded Nickelodeon awards recently, many people came out and branded Eddy Kenzo as the biggest artiste in Uganda. This win comes after the musician had won the Afriima Awards and BET award some years back.
In the Afriima and Nickelodeon awards, he beat some of Africa’s biggest musicians in Wizkid, Diamond Platinumz and Sauti Sol among others.
Well, we would like to agree partly, but that is if awards have anything to do with someone’s success in the business.
Eddy Kenzo has achieved what many big Ugandan artistes have failed to achieve in the last couple of years. It’s only Radio and Weasel who came close to winning a BET award but they also just only stopped at being nominated.
Eddy Kenzo has also now become the most booked Ugandan artiste, not in Uganda but globally and his fiancée Rema Namakula was quoted recently during her show at Serena saying. “Immediately he returns home after a month, another booking comes a day later. We barely spend time with him.”
If only Eddy Kenzo had the fan base that the likes of Bebe Cool, Juliana or even Anne Kansiime have on the local scene, he would be on another level altogether.
