BIG WINNER? Artiste Eddy Kenzo

It was a big night for Ugandan crooner, Edirisa Musuza aka Eddy Kenzo as he clinched top awards at the 2017 edition of the All Africa Music Awards (AFRIMA) held Sunday at the EKO Hotel and Suites, Lagos, Nigeria.

Kenzo won two of the most prestigious categories – Album of the Year and Best East African Artiste award.

“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,” Kenzo noted on his social media pages.
