Uganda’s record breaker and finest musician Eddy Kenzo alias Edirisa Musuuza has revealed that his life is under threat putting his fans on notice not to get shocked in case he is killed.
Addressing a press conference in Kampala after his successful festival dubbed Eddy Kenzo Festival held on Saturday at Kololo independence grounds, Kenzo said that the threats issued against him don’t stop only on social media but some are directly sent to him.
“The threats you see on the internet against me don’t stop there but there also real threats to my life. Don’t get shocked if you wake up one day when am killed.” Kenzo said
Kenzo also made very clear that nobody will stop him from associating with his friends because of their political affiliation.
“Politics is destroying our country, you can’t stop me from associating with other people because of their political affiliations. No they are all our brothers and sisters. It’s unfortunate that those who go abroad seeking for freedom are instead taking away our freedom by forcing us to do what they want. However I forgive everyone who was fighting my festival and those who are fighting me.” Said Kenzo
Eddy Kenzo used the opportunity to thank his fans that turned up for the Eddy Kenzo Festival, musicians, and journalists who made a contribution to have a successful festival but above all he thanked God for manifesting His mighty power by shutting down all the powers of the wicked hearted and evil ones who wanted to frustrate the festival.
“God is just using me to do whatever I have done and what am yet to do so that generations to come can copy from it and do it even 10 times more.
They pulled down my banners, sent messages to the international artists stopping them from coming and issuing them with death threats. Harmonize was offered 10,000 US Dollars not to come and when he turned it down they resorted to death threats.”
Eddy Kenzo also revealed that on Friday Luba Events had secured a court Order to stop the Festival but by God’s grace and relevant authorities’ intervention the court order was overturned however the matter is still in Court.
Eddy Kenzo said that Luba Event failed to meet his contractual obligation before the country was lockdown because of the Covid 19 pandemic. He added that Luba also used the opportunity to ripe from his (KENZO) name and he was compensated over 450 million from government and he never paid Kenzo a single penny from it.
