Evicted Tusker Project Fame contestant, Derrick Kojjo sounded apologetic when he revealed, on his arrival from Nairobi, that his move to save South Sudanese contestant Bior in the TPF academy, haunted him and perhaps even cost him his stay in the academy.
“I never settled after that time. I tried wearing a brave face and focus on the competition but after I realized I had made a mistake in not saving Sitenda, it disturbed me a lot.
“I thought I was trying to save Bior, my friend, who had asked me to try save him but it is after the show that night, it dawned on me it was a grave mistake. I know Ugandans hate me now after that time but I ask for forgiveness from everyone and even Sitenda,” adds a soft-spoken Kojjo.
Sitenda accompanied Kojjo, alongside The Undercover Brothers to Vision Group offices for an interview in a show of solidarity. Sitenda says she holds no grudge towards Kojjo and says, perhaps, it was his way of competing.
“I hold no beef on Kojjo. It was a competition and we all had to survive. It hurt me that time but I let go of it,” she said.
He was evicted last Saturday alongside Rwanda’s Phionah, having amassed the least votes under a tallying system. Kojjo had not been on probation until last weekend when he was put on the chopping block for a poor performance.
He says the academy boosted his confidence levels and says he is going to find ways of breaking through in the music industry.
“I will miss the academy but it gave me confidence that I lacked before the competition. I would like try out my music career after the competition and I hope I make it,” adds the 21-year-old guitarist.
