Tuesday, October 29, 2019

President Yoweri Museveni has congratulated Eddy Kenzo, one of Uganda’s high sounding and outgoing personality in the music industry, for making very good achievements in the music and entertainment sector.

"I want to congratulate Kenzo for making very good contribution in music. He was a street boy and an orphan but he had a talent of singing,'' said President Museveni.

The President made the remarks yesterday at State House, Entebbe when he met Eddy Kenzo. 

The Ugandan musician retuned home recently from the United States of America where he won the award of African Entertainer of the year in the African Entertainment Awards.

President Museveni used the occasion of his meeting with musician Eddy Kenzo to appeal to the youths in Uganda to emulate the example of Mr. Kenzo to get out of poverty by exploiting their talents fully.

"I appeal to the youths to use his example to get out of poverty by using their talents. If you are not singing, you can do it by farming, innovations and painting, among others,'' he said.

He noted that the musicians have prospered because of performing good entertainments in Uganda adding that this is possible because of the prevailing peace provided by the NRM government. He observed that Uganda is an easy destination for investment in comparison to other destinations mainly because of the prevailing peace.

President Museveni pledged support to Eddy Kenzo and other singers the way the NRM Government has done for the Athletes and footballers on account of their good performance.

Musician Eddy Kenzo thanked President Museveni for his support. He presented some of the awards he received to President Museveni for recognition.
