Yesterday night,the MTV Africa Music Awards were held in South Africa and non of the three(Sheeba,Bebe Cool and Eddy Kenzo)nominees from Uganda managed to scoop any accolade.
However,Eddy Kenzo who lost to South Africa’s Casper Nyovest in the category of Best live act did not take this too lightly,He accused the awards organizers of being unfair and political saying that they rigged his votes.
Kenzo said Nyovest is the MTN ambassador where as him (kenzo) is the Airtel ambassador and MTN is the main sponsor of the awards,so they had to pronounce their ambassador as the winner eventhough it was very clear that Kenzo was ahead of him interms of votes.
” I’m airtel ambassador MTN is the main sponsor 4 mamas and the winner in my category is mtn ambassador south Africa, Hehehe just for just. 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 your self 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 down thats what they said even in emails. I was the most voted in my category remember wen you click on #Bestliveact you can see the results Stonboy was 2nd flavour 3rd Caspa 4th. on all @mtvbaseafrica platforms even if it was you!!! should have felt the same. may be! I didn’t understand the word vote for your favorite nominee. Abig thanks to my fans guys the love was real may the Almighty bless the work of your hands.” Kenzo wrote on his facebook wall.
