Singer Eddy Kenzo has come out and replied angry Ugandans who said they are not going to vote for him in Afrimma but rather vote for Diamond Platnumz with whom he is battling for the award.
Eddy Kenzo earlier this week was among the seven Ugandans that scooped nominations in the 7th edition of the African Music Magazine Awards (AFRIMMA) that will take place in Dallas, Texas on November 15 2020.
However, with the current toxic blend of politics and the entertainment industry in Uganda, People Power movement/ National Unity Platform supporters have vowed not to vote for Kenzo since they accuse him of having betrayed the struggle by ‘going to bed’ with the regime.
“I don’t support anyone in politics; I’m independent and a tourism ambassador. All I want for my country is peace,” Kenzo said.
Kenzo said being nominated in such prestigious international awards is enough indicator that he’s a winner and people are free to vote whoever they want.
“It is up to the people to vote Diamond or me because he is also East African. I have no problem with that, after all, it has always been me or him,” he said.
