On Sunday, BET award winner Edrisa Musuuza aka Eddy Kenzo visited the house he lived in with his mother before she died.
“We were evicted a few days later cause we couldn’t afford rent.”
Born in Masaka, Kenzo lost his mother at age 5, after which he lived a street life for 13 years.
The singer then shared pictures of the dangerously dilapidated mud-walled house with peeling doors and rusty iron sheets.
“…lots of memories in this place, with God everything is possible. Congs Maama, we made it.”
The singer now lives in a mansion located in Seguku said to have cost him at least Shs1.2bn.
Kenzo is now a Ugandan artist best known for his 2014 song “Sitya Loss”.
After high school, he adopted the stage name Eddy Kenzo and began writing music.
In 2008, he was featured in the popular song Yanimba by Mikie Wine.
His breakthrough 2010 song, Stamina, was met with critical acclaim and was used as a theme song for Yoweri Museveni’s presidential campaign.
He released the album Ogenda Kunzisa in 2012. One year later, he released Kamunguluze and toured the United States.
The song Sitya Loss became his most popular song to date, and a video of the Ugandan children Triplets Ghetto Kids dancing to the song went viral.
Its success led to the launching of a petition to have the dancing children appear on The Ellen DeGeneres Show.
Kenzo released the album Sitya Loss in May 2014.
Kenzo has one daughter, Maya Musuuza Mirembe born 2011, from a previous relationship with Tracy Nabatanzi.
In 2014, Kenzo had another daughter Aamaal Musuuza through a relation with Rema Namakula, his current girlfriend.
He holds several national and international awards.
