Our very own Eddy Kenzo has made history as the first Ugandan to win a BET award. In 2013, Moze Radio and Weasel were nominated but lost out to Ice Prince. Kenzo hit the limelight in the year 2010 with his Stamina song that came with the stamina dance.
In March 2014, Eddy Kenzo bounced back with the 'Sitya Loss' song which became an instant hit. The Sitya loss kids in the video had unique dance moves that made the video go viral in just under three months of being added to YouTube, it currently stands at 12million youtube views 12 months later.
And now, Sanyu FM's morning show host, James Onen aka Fat Boy had this to say:
"So I'm not trying to hate on Eddie Kenzo but the only reason his video was popular was because of the dancing kids. They are the reason the video got all those views. Am I wrong? And if so, shouldn't they have been the ones to win the award instead of him?"
His followers were quick to respond and below are some of the comments that followed:
"When Jayz's video is popular because of the girls shaking bo.oty will u still ask if the girls are the ones who should get the award?"
"Who put those dancing kids in that song? They knew how to dance why didn't they get a camera and dance there way to a million you tube views?"
"Hence it was called the viewer awards. Seriously without those kids the video woulda been ____"
"For once let's love one of ours instead of looking for loopholes in his fine fly moment. Onen I would love to hear you ask other artists to congratulate him on his success"
