Eddy Kenzo yet again proved that he is East Africa’s new champion. The fast rising artist defeated Tanzania’s Diamond Platinum and Alikiba to walk away with two awards: Best Male artist in East Africa and Best Album in the 2017 Afrima Awards.
Kenzo could not hide his excitement. He took on social media and posted:
‘ ‘Hello my fans and Africa at large, from the bottom of my heart I Wanna thank you so much for being part of this greatest success. I have had sleepless nights hustling tirelessly to make sure we go an extra mile every time. Winning best male East Africa and best album at the Afrima shows how great our God is and how He works in ways we cannot see.’’
‘‘This is not for me alone but for mother Uganda, East Africa and Africa generally. To all my fellow East African artists, let’s work so hard to get more of these for our continent.’’
‘‘Stick to your gun, keep your heads up, look up to God who is the giver of everything am sure you can do far better than me. Thank you Afrima, thank you my lovely fans for making a historical impact for East Africa may God bless you so much. Thank you Afrimawards’’
