[dropcap]I[/dropcap]drissa Musuza commonly known as Eddie Kenzo is a multi talented musician who has a made a name in the entertainment industry through hits like Stamina, Nategede,Yanimba with Mickie Wine, Kanambako among others. Having made his debut in 1997 with Tutese as his first single, the 20year old is the CEO of Big Talent, a musician’s talent group with Big Eye, Zuma, Showcase, Ziwa and Abubaker as other crew members. With a new artist Golden Award under his name, Kenzo can’t identify his music style saying “Being versatile, my music depends mainly in the moods I’m in. For example I came up with lonely because I was in a sad mood.” [highlight]Asked how he came up with his top of the charts Stamina hit, the budding artist said he recorded the track after acquiring it from a free-style. “Earlier, Stamina was just a free style I did when making a valentine show advert at DV8 bar in Luzira but through Lexus Kalema, I found myself writing down verses of the song and then hit Studio afterwards.” the Nategede artist answered.[/highlight] Amid constant beef from big artists who induce journalists to write trash about upcoming artists, He refutes allegations that he’s not on good terms with fellow musician Aziz Azion like earlier reported by the press. Kenzo who’s striving at becoming a prominent businessman and household name in the music industry encourages his fans to keep reading musicuganda and to stop believing in gossip and rumors without basis. In his first year of participation, local musician Eddie Musuza alias Kenzo last week said he has quit PAM Awards for failing to list his song among the nominees in the song of the year category. Kenzo has now become the fourth artist after Chameleon, Richard Kaweesa and Bebe Cool to snub the most prestigious awards in East Africa. Dissatisfaction is his major reason for throwing in the towel after his “Stamina” song failed to be listed among the four favorite songs to scoop the award. “With a lot of expectations, Kenzo couldn’t believe it when he heard that that Kasepeki, Omukwano gunyuma, Vumilia and Amelia were the contending songs for this years song of the year Accolade.” A fellow journalist said.
He also added that it’s complete madness for some of the songs to be listed without Kenzo’s stamina. “I don’t know what the song is about but I just find myself grooving up and down on listening to it.” “The unfairness about the selection of the categories is the reason i’ve quit PAM Awards. As a matter of fact Stamina would have scooped that award if I’m not mistaken because of the success it has received in the region.” The golden new artist of the year winner said.
The “Ntwala Ewamwe” artist was only listed among the new upcoming artists category in the 2010 PAM Awards alongside the Kiwoko boys, Coco Finger and Samalie Matovu of the omukwano Gunyuma fame. Meanwhile the Hip Hop category was rectified after the Organizing committee members realized that Rabadaba and Mighty Son are not Hip hop artists. Instead they replaced them with Atlas De African and Mun’G who will be tussling it out with Navio and GNL. Isac44@gmail.com
