Scooping a nomination in any awards and winning the award are two different things so every time an artiste wins, at times we should allow any kind of way they express their excitement. On the same note, singer Bruno K was last Friday evening overwhelmed by emotions and cried like a little baby on stage after he was announced the Best Reggae Artiste according to The Uganda Music Awards (TUMA), held at Kampala Serena Hotel.
Announced by Ras B Ssali a veteran Reggae artiste, Bruno K took the stage strong enough just like a winner would but a few minutes later as he gave his brief speech, the crowd was shocked to see the ‘One For The Road’ hit singer fail to complete his speech because of crying the tears of Joy.
“This was the same stage in February 2015 when they announced Sandra Suubi as the winner of Airtel Trace Music Star. My mother thought I was going to be the winner and I remember when she found me back stage, hugged and told me that one day I would become a winner. I would like to thank this man here, he is my brother. He has been investing every little he has in me which is not easy for someone to believe in you.” Bruno K said as he shed tears.
Although Bruno’s fans thought he had been cheated at Airtel Trace Music Star, winning the best Reggae artiste at TUMA, was a big milestone for him especially basing on one fact that he has a Reggae hit song dubbed ‘One For The Road’ that is doing pretty well and winning an award for it made him shed tears.
