Edrisah Musuuza, also known as Eddy Kenzo, the first Grammy Nominee from Uganda, is no new name in the African entertainment space. He has been on the trend for some years now and even co-produced a song with Beyonce.
Born to a Ugandan father and a Rwandan mother whose family were among the victims of the 1994 genocide, Kenzo’s childhood was scarred by tragedy after he lost both his parents to illness. He was just four years old.
By the time Kenzo was a teenager, he was sleeping rough on the streets of Kampala, often going to bed hungry.
