Uganda's high-flying music star, Edrisa Musuuza aka Eddy Kenzo has this morning decided to hand over his international awards to be kept at the Uganda Museum.
According to the ‘Jubilation' star, this is aimed at motivating Uganda's young generation to work hard and improve their talents for not only their good but for the country as a whole.
"I have decided to put my BET Award, AFRIMMA best male 2017 and KUNDE BF 2015 awards in the museum and the moment the Nickelodeon Award gets in the country, I will bring it such that young people having a dream to become great musicians can look at them and be motivated to work harder and win even bigger ones. Parents should bring their children and let them see these great honors for our country. I acknowledge the acceptance by Uganda Museum to receive and keep these awards and I believe they are in safe hands of Government and they belong to the people of Uganda. I therefore encourage Uganda museum management that they allow people touch and feel them other than viewing them in the glass. Thanks everyone, For God and my Country," the singer stated.
It should be noted that several celebrities have won both local and international awards for their great work but in most cases have kept them as personal achievements.
Kenzo also stated, "On this note, I want to challenge the Government of Uganda and private companies to start investing in talent; most especially our great music industry. It is growing and becoming bigger day by day and this is something we can use to change lives of many young people out there. We need to acknowledge our musicians, support them and develop facilities that can improve our music industry if we are to continue to compete on the international level."
