On October 14 2019, award winning singer Eddy Kenzo vowed never to perform again in Uganda until Muslim leader Sheikh Nuhu Muzaata apologizes to him in public.
While addressing a congregation at Rema Namakula’s ‘kukyala’, the Kibuli PRO spit statements that were viewed as demeaning and among the most taunting statement was when he (Muzaata) said ‘genda owase nyoko’ literally meaning Kenzo should marry his mother.
This and other statements made Kenzo spendsleepless nights until he came out and vowed never to perform in Uganda again unless an open apology to the public is made.
Muzaata laughed off any chance of an apology.
Many expected Kenzo never to perform in Uganda. Well, he said so himself.
But twelve days later, Kenzo performed in Kampala. The singer belted out his hits during the “UNO” Release Party in Club Guvnor. The party also featured Tanzanian star Harmonize.
