After coming out empty handed at the MTV Africa Music Awards held over the weekend in Johanesburg South Africa, Uganda’s representatives Bebe Cool and Sheebah Karungi conceded defeat but Kenzo is not taking non of that and insists he was cheated.
Eddy Kenzo lost the Best Live Act award to South Africa’s Cassper Nyovest and cried foul. He came out on social media with with a long rant about the politics surrounding the awards just after Cassper was announced winner.
Kenzo says he was surprised when Cassper was announced yet he called out the public to vote and expected to win. He says it is because the awards were sponsored by MTN yet he is an Airtel brand ambassador.
“I’m Airtel ambassador and MTN is the main sponsor for MAMAs and the winner in my category is MTN ambassador South Africa. Hehehe just for just,” Kenzo said sarcastically.
“Remember!! I have performed in over 35 countries 10 of them full stadium what else? They told us to vote and my fans did go on all @mtvbaseafrica platforms click on #Bestliveact and see the winner by yourself. I’m not being jealous here, but I do complain because they told us to vote and the fans decide. Go back and check their posts. That’s what they said even in emails. I was the most voted in my category remember when you click on #Bestliveact you can see the results Stonboy was second, Flavour third and Cassper fourth on all @mtvbaseafrica platforms. Even if it was you, you would have felt the same. May be I didn’t understand the word vote for your favourite nominee. A big thanks to my fans guys the love was real may the Almighty bless the work of your hands,” Kenzo, a winner of a 2015 BET Award said.
