Spice Diana who received the award alongside B2C in Kenzo’s absence said that she was humbled to receive this award.
The Onsanula singer also revealed that it was her first-ever nomination in the AFRIMMA awards.
“I was humbled to be nominated, it was my first nomination in the AFRIMMA awards. Whether I won or not, it was an amazing experience to be on that stage. We should also stop belittling our artistes who have won the awards. I was humbled to receive Eddy Kenzo’s award. When one of us wins, it’s a win for every Ugandan,” She said.
This follows some Ugandans who have been trashing Kenzo’s AFRIMMA Award win. They feel that there is no way the weekend singer could have beaten the likes of Diamond Platinumz and Sauti Sol.
Dembe FM presenter and music analyst Eddie Sendi came out to say that Kenzo had an inferior year compared to those he was battling with in the male East African music category.
Sendi added that they only awarded Kenzo the gong because AFRIMMA organizers know that the other musicians are big.
They therefore won’t have the time to recognize the awards and even bring them on their social media pages.
Kenzo however came out in a social media video to thank everyone who had voted for him in the awards.
Some sections of Ugandan social media users are fond of foreign artistes more than their own. With the infiltration of politics in the music industry, the cancel culture has become even worse.
