Famed singer and BET Award winner, Eddy Kenzo real name, Edrisa Musuuza is on Cloud 9 after becoming the second Ugandan to feature on the historical New York Times Square Billboard following producer Herbertskillz who hit the milestone.
One might call it luck as it not only talent but Young Mandela is still making strides and history in his lifetime. As he gears up for the release of the piece of the art mega music collabo ‘Missounwa’ featuring Ivorian singer Monique Séka, the world got to know how influential and celebrated the 'Tweyagale' singer is after the latter shared a video through his socials while featuring on the New York City’s Times Square billboard next to the legendary American music star, Alicia Keys.
Below is Herbertskillz Video on the Billboard:
“Pass by the New York time square in the US, you will see your boy Eddy Kenzo in partnership with @primemusicpartner getting ready to release an African classic we all grew up enjoying titled Missounwa redone with Mama Monique Seka. The first Ugandan Musician to appear on the New York Time square billboard. S/O @busiematsiko. Let the music speak,” Eddy Kenzo wrote.
The development totally silenced Eddy Kenzo's critics as it inked a real statement as to why he not only sells the Luganda dialect to the whole world through his music but he is also blessed with hard work and success.
