MC Kats Explains Why He Revealed His HIV Status

The entertainment circles and many Ugandans conversant with the entertainment were thrown into shock a few years ago courtesy of MC Kats. This was after entertainment MC, Edwin Katamba went public with his HIV status.

During one of his gigs around a Kampala hang out, Kats unexpectedly revealed that he was HIV positive. This was during a period when the NBS After 5 presenter was rumored to be going through depression.

Kats during his King of the Mic concert that happened over the weekend revealed that revealing his status freed him mentally.

He added that he had been silently stigmatized for long. However, coming out really took the weight off his shoulders.

“When I revealed my HIV status, it opened up my heart. I felt happier, I was freed. I was stigmatized for so long in silence by even my close friends. And I really want to create an environment where the sick don’t go through what I went through. We shall overcome this disease through collective efforts,” Kats said.

His revelation however came with both repercussions and blessings. For instance, he lost communication with his baby mama, singer Fille Mutoni.

The singer went through a period of depression and took time off music and even turned to drugs for solace. The two however of recent seem somehow friendly again.

Kats on the other hand was made the ambassador of the Uganda AIDS Commission. He’s now more into creating awareness against HIV stigma and discrimination of HIV patients.
