From the streets to making it big
Ugandan superstar Eddy Kenzo has started the year with a bang!
In 2015, the 'Sitya Loss' hit maker scooped a BET Award for the International Viewers Award. Other awards under his belt include AFRIMA Awards, Nigeria Entertainment Awards and the recent International Reggae and World Music Awards where he was named ‘Best African Entertainer’ among others.
And now, he has added another award to his profile after bagging the Nickelodeon's Kids Choice Awards 2018. Kenzo won the ‘Favourite African Star’ category beating rapper Cassper Nyovest (South Africa), athlete Caster Semenya (South Africa), singer Davido (Nigeria), comedian Emmanuella (Nigeria), and singer Diamond Platnumz (Tanzania).
The event took place in California on Saturday, 24th March and was hosted by John Cena. Some of the big names that won were Demi Lovato, who bagged the Best Female Artiste and Shawn Mendes for the Best Male Artiste.
Eddy Kenzo is one of the many artistes that have an inspiring story. The 29 year old started out from a humble background in the streets and hustled his way up. Now, look at God. His hard work has truly not gone unnoticed.
It's great to see African artistes being recognized internationally.
Well in Eddy Kenzo.
