Eddy Kenzo to Bobi Wine: I will not campaign for People Power again but will support and vote for him
The BET Award winner, Edrisa Musuuza aka Eddy Kenzo has revealed that he will not carry on campaigns for any politician, not even his fellow singer and a friend, Robert Kyagulanyi aka Bobi Wine the People Power Leader and the Kyadondo East legislator in the coming campaigns for 2021 general elections.
Kenzo says he will support and vote for Bobi Wine but he does not do campaigns for him again.
“Mr Kyagulanyi is my friend, but I will never campaign for him again. I will support him and vote for him. I will never jump onto any platform to convince people of what he is capable of doing,” Kenzo said.Tweet
The “Sitya Loss” Singer made the revelation during a media briefing he addressed shortly after meeting President Yoweri Kaguta Museveni, at State House Entebbe.
Eddy Kenzo who piloted President Museveni’s presidential campaigns in 2011, through his “Stamina” song and Bobi Wine parliamentary campaigns for the Kyadondo East seat in 2016, positions the two won, vowed never to campaign for any of them again.
“I campaigned for him (Bobi Wine) in Kyadondo, but for president, I won’t. he must convince people he is the best. I will not campaign for any other person. I am a person who must bring together people.”Tweet
However, commenting on his meeting with President Museveni earlier this week, Kenzo says it’s a blessing, celebration and a dream that came true, to sit together with His Excellency the president.
“I don’t think I made a wrong decision and I am so blessed. I thank God for it. I met him and we exchanged many things. I celebrate it (meeting) as an achievement. I even told Kyagulanyi, Zaake that I was going to see Mzee. It is everyone’s achievement. He is the fountain of honour that everyone wants to rub shoulders with,” said Kenzo.Tweet
Nonetheless, Kenzo denied allegations that he once campaigned against the National Resistance Movement (NRM) Party. He says the same question was raised by the president in the meeting, the two held.
Kenzo says leaders are God chosen, and as a God-fearing person, he cannot fight what God has planted.
“I am not ready to fight the government. I can’t be against a person that God chose. He is the one who knows why he (president) is in that place. I don’t think am ready to fight with the state. If you respect God, you must respect the leader, and if you respect parents, respect elders. I could not resist the call, because he is the leader of this country. He is a parent, and his authority was given by God.”Tweet
He adds that;
“If you respect God, you must respect the leader and if you respect parents, respect elders.”Tweet
Relatedly, following Kenzo’s reactions to the Muslim cleric, Sheikh Nuuhu Muzaata’s unethical remarks he made on him and his career during Rema Namakula’s Kukyala ceremony, Eddy Kenzo’s ex-lover, and his recent meeting with the President, Kenzo says he has earned himself enemies who are now drawing death threats upon his life.
His says his life is more important than anything, at a moment. He, however, requested the government to give him security because he’s a Ugandan who’s earning the country good revenue.
“I have received very many threat by many people who want to harm me. I call them the mafias. If you people see how those on social media were fanning negative comments about me, then I am not secure,” Kenzo stated.Tweet
“I am asking for security to protect me. I went to meet Mzee (President Museveni) and people said they will kill me because of that meeting.”Tweet
Kenzo commends Uganda’s security
The BET Award winner commended Uganda for being the best country as far as security is concerned.
Kenzo at one point thought Uganda was the worst country, because it was what he had ever witnessed, but after visiting other countries, he realised that Uganda is the best, although it has other bad things of its kind.
“I thought Uganda was the worst because it was what I was seeing. But when I went to countries like Chad, Malawi and Burkina Faso, I realised that Uganda had bad things, but has so many good things as well.”Tweet
“When I finished singing in Chad, the red carpet I used was stolen while I was still on stage, and bullets were all over. I have seen America (USA), and South Africa. Uganda has the best security, certain things that happen in other countries cannot happen here.”Tweet
Further, Kenzo noted that the biggest issue in Uganda has been neglecting the ghetto people, but at least they the security, and they don’t kill one another.
“The ghetto people are doing so bad, but the good thing is that they have security and are not killing each other. This is not the same in certain countries, I have seen. We can do anything we want here in Uganda; we drink from morning till evening. It’s hard to find food, but we still find it without any problems.”Tweet
