The just concluded MAMAs were a proud moment for Kenyans. Sauti Sol bagged the Best group award. However no other East African artist won any award.
Diamond, Eddzy Kenzo, Vanessa Mdee and The Kansoul all missed out on their various categories.
But now Ugandan superstar Eddy Kenzo is claiming that he did win in the category for Live Act, but was denied the award.
He was nominated along with Flavour (Nigeria), Stonebwoy (Ghana), Cassper Nyovest (South Africa) and Mafikizolo (South Africa). Cassper Nyovest won but Eddy Kenzo believes he ought to have won because he garnered the most votes. The ‘Sitya los’ hit maker took to Inatagram to present his version of events.
“I’m airtel ambassador MTN is the main sponsor 4 mamas and the winner in my category is mtn ambassador south Africa, Hehehe just for just. Remember!! I have performed in over 35 countries 10 of them full stadium what else? they told us to vote and my fans did go on all @mtvbaseafrica platforms click on #Bestliveact and see the winner by your self I’m not being jealous here, but I do complain because they told us to vote and the fans decide. go back and check their posts down thats what they said even in emails. I was the most voted in my category remember wen you click on #Bestliveact you can see the results Stonboy was 2nd flavour 3rd Caspa 4th. on all @mtvbaseafrica platforms even if it was you!!! should have felt the same. may be! I didn’t understand the word vote for your favorite nominee. Abig thanks to my fans guys the love was real may the Almighty bless the work of your hands.” Eddy Kenzo grumbled after he failed to win Best Live Act.
Well well this just made things a bit more interesting. So do you believe Eddy’s theory?
