With a new artist Golden Award under his name, Kenzo can’t identify his music style saying “Being versatile, my music depends mainly in the moods I’m in.
For example I came up with lonely because I was in a sad mood.”
Asked how he came up with his top of the charts Stamina hit, the budding artist said he recorded the track after acquiring it from a free-style. “Earlier, Stamina was just a free style I did when making a valentine show advert at DV8 bar in Luzira but through Lexus Kalema, I found myself writing down verses of the song and then hit Studio afterwards.” the Nategede artist answered.
Amid constant beef from big artists who induce journalists to write trash about upcoming artists, He refutes allegations that he’s not on good terms with fellow musician Aziz Azion like earlier reported by the press.
Kenzo who’s striving at becoming a prominent businessman and household name in the music industry encourages his fans to keep reading musicuganda and to stop believing in gossip and rumors without basis.
Kenzo shurns PAM Awards by 1544c Ssejjombwe. (+256-782-233273)
In his first year of participation, local musician Eddie Musuza alias Kenzo last week said he has quit PAM Awards for failing to list his song among the nominees in the song of the year category. Kenzo has now become the fourth artist after Chameleon, Richard Kaweesa and Bebe Cool to snub the most prestigious awards in East Africa.
Dissatisfaction is his major reason for throwing in the towel after his “Stamina” song failed to be listed among the four favorite songs to scoop the award.
“With a lot of expectations, Kenzo couldn’t believe it when he heard that that Kasepeki, Omukwano gunyuma, Vumilia and Amelia were the contending songs for this years song of the year Accolade.” A fellow journalist said.
He also added that it’s complete madness for some of the songs to be listed without Kenzo’s stamina. “I don’t know what the song is about but I just find myself grooving up and down on listening to it.” “The unfairness about the selection of the categories is the reason i’ve quit PAM Awards. As a matter of fact Stamina would have scooped that award if I’m not mistaken because of the success it has received in the region.” The golden new artist of the year winner said.
The “Ntwala Ewamwe” artist was only listed among the new upcoming artists category in the 2010 PAM Awards alongside the Kiwoko boys, Coco Finger and Samalie Matovu of the omukwano Gunyuma fame.
Meanwhile the Hip Hop category was rectified after the Organizing committee members realized that Rabadaba and Mighty Son are not Hip hop artists. Instead they replaced them with Atlas De African and Mun’G who will be tussling it out with Navio and GNL.

Kenzo remixes “Ekimuli kya Rosa” by 1544c Ssejjombwe. (+256 782233273)
Following the passing of Fred Maiso, Big Talent’s C.E.O Eddie Kenzo has decided to re-do “Ekimuli ky rosa”, a song that helped the deceased reach greater heights in the music industry.
Details about the song haven’t yet emerged but we’ve leant that the “Stamina” artist never seeked for permission from the eagles production to use the song and info fast coming in is that most Eagles production members are so angry with kenzo for making such a drastic decision.
“Not even a month has passed since Fred Maiso passed on and Kenzo has gone ahead and recorded his song. The least he could do was to at least respect him. Its as though he was waiting for him to die. We are not going to rest until this is solved. “Said one of the band members.”
The song hasn’t been released yet but Kenzo has remained tight lipped about the accusations.
Fred Maiso was one of the pioneer and longest serving band members until his passing a few weeks back.
