Following Eddy Kenzo’s failure to win the Best Live Act award, the singer has reportedly been furious with the whole world claiming that he was cheated and the world is just looking on.
Eddy Kenzo believes that by performing in multiple stadiums around the world is enough proof that he is the Best Live act on the continent.
He also complained in a typical Ugandan way urging fans to check the hashtags without understanding the entire voting process. He also blamed his loss on politics like a jilted opposition leader after losing an election to the ruling party.
“I think Eddy Kenzo has been confused by singing in stadiums. Singing in a stadium does not make one an outstanding Live act. He should be happy he got nominated because his stage performance is not enthralling enough for the award. Ever since he parted ways with his dancer Ronnie Stamina, all he does is jump on stage like a girl who has seen a snake!” A fan observed.
“I advise him to check out performances of Mr. Flavour, Cassper, MiCasa, Diamond…I mean he is not that good as far as stage performances are concerned.”
A spokeswoman for the event said the Best Live Act and other key voting categories were 100 percent chosen by MTV viewers and music fans. “The votes were compiled from a number of different sources, including www.mtvbase.com, Twitter, Facebook and Instagram. Basing the result on the voting hashtag alone gives an inaccurate picture of who won. Collating the votes from all sources confirms that Cassper Nyovest is the rightful winner,” said Alison Reid, Africa Director of Communications for Viacom International Media Networks (VIMN).
Fellow Ugandan artist Bebe Cool took his defeat in the Listeners Choice category in his stride. “I thank the people who are supportive of hardworking Ugandans. I have displayed strength, capability and talent, sacrificed and helped to build others despite the negative forces and am still going to do so,” said Bebe, who has been nominated for a MAMA twice without winning.
“This is the third year Uganda gets nominated in the MTV awards and it’s my second time. Many countries and individuals don’t get this recognition despite their hard work but we do,” Bebe’s post partly read.
The award was won by South Africa’s Casper Nyovest.
