KAMPALA – Uganda’s celebrated artiste Eddy Kenzo has pledged to fly his fans in helicopters in a music festival that he will hold on 28th March 2020 in Kampala.
Speaking during a press conference at Kati Kati Restaurant, Lugogo in Kampala on Tuesday, February 18, 2020, Kenzo said the music festival, which will be held at Kololo Independence Grounds, is intended to give back to his fans who have supported his music.
He said the festival will feature dancing competitions between boda boda riders and the winners will walk away with brand new bikes.
“We shall also bring a zoo and two aeroplanes for people to fly around Kampala. I want someone who has never boarded a plane to come and get a free ride around Kampala,” Kenzo told journalists.
He added that the fun-filled event will also feature dance competitions for children where winners will walk away with school fees and other prizes. The festival will also feature music performances from Uganda’s leading singers as well as the upcoming entertainers.
Kenzo said regional tours will start on April 3 in Mbale, April 4 in Mbarara and April 5 in Masaka.
The artiste promised to organize Uganda’s best music party. Entrance to the festival will be only 10k (kids), 20k (adults), 50k (VIP) and 2.5M (VVIP Tables).
The 30-year-old music career has blossomed over the last six years. He received international attention after the release of his 2014 single, “Sitya Loss” and an accompanying viral video that featured the Ghetto Kids. In total, he has released 4 albums, including most recently, Roots, in 2018. Kenzo has also won numerous national and international awards, including a Nickelodeon Kids’ Choice Award in 2018, a BET Award in 2015, and multiple All Africa Music Awards.
