Singer Eddy Kenzo had plenty to be thankful for as he was one of the biggest winners at the Uganda Entertainment Awards, walking away with three awards on Saturday evening.

Kenzo scooped Best Video, Male Artist and Overall Artist of the Year awards. 

However all his acceptance speeches drew laughter from the crowd owing to his imperfect command of the English language. 

Clearly irked by the events, he unloaded on his detractors telling them how he has travelled the world with his ‘broken English’ as he accepted one of the awards. 

“I am the most famous person and musician from Uganda and I represent Uganda to the outside world, so you who speak good English, what's your stand?” he asked.

“It is so sad that we have abandoned and neglected our norms including speaking our local languages to loving the foreign languages” Kenzo added before departing the stage.
