Ugandan music star, Eddy Kenzo, on Sunday outshone Nigerian singer and female comedienne, Davido and Emmanuella to clinch the favourite African star category of the 2018 Nickelodeon Kids’ Choice Awards.
When the Nickelodeon awards nominations were announced, Nigerians were ecstatic to have two of their own recognised on the global stage.
The Ugandan star took to his Facebook page to share the news of his triumph.
Real name, Edrisa Musuuza, Kenzo is best known for his 2014 song ‘Sitya Loss’. In 2017, he released ‘Sembera Eno’ and ‘Jubilation’, two songs which were big hits in Uganda.
The award ceremony took place in Inglewood, California, US, on Sunday. The winner was determined by voter preferences and other considerations.
Other African stars nominated for the award are Casper Nyovest (South Africa), Caster Somonya (South Africa), Diamond Platnumz (Tanzania), and Eddy Konzo (Uganda).
