For Eddy Kenzo, his fans have decided to remind him his remarks about politics, saying that they will borrow his same words not to vote him. Amongst his words, Eddy Kenzo has been saying that he does not want to take sides in politics because he does not want to divide his fans. The fans have also said that they won’t vote for him because they do not want to divide musicians.
On his remarks that he is not a politician to talk about politics, his fans have said that they are also not musicians to talk about music, asking him to look for fellow musicians to vote for him.
One fan, Bale Hanning had this to say, “me am in politics am not a musician so let me leave the issue to the musicians.”
Eddy Kenzo was once a die hard supporter of Bobi Wine and always appreciated him as his father after starting up his music career while in Fire Base Entertainment by offering him free music production in his studio. Ugandans fell in love with him when he started talking about the injustices in Uganda and crowned it with a trendy song he called Volongoto. Eddy Kenzo however started changing many of his statements after meeting President Museveni and this sparked the unending attacks from his fans who claim that he abandoned them for money.
However much there is much negative feedback from his fans, there are a few loyal fans that have assured him their votes, voted and even gone ahead to send screenshots in the comments section confirming their votes. The voting platform allows one to vote as many times as they can, as long as they pay 50 Naira per vote.
