New York, US – Singer Eddy Kenzo’s star keeping shining after he was named by the US Congress as the Cultural Ambassador of the West Indian American Day Carnival that started in Brooklyn, New York on August 29.
Despite being in the spotlight for breaking up with his baby mama Rema Namakula, the singer’s recognition as an ambassador of the annual four-day cultural event signifies that his talent is appreciated globally. The 2019 edition of West Indian American Day Carnival marked the 52nd annual celebrations of the colorful and well-organized event that celebrates the Caribbean community.
The event usually attracts more than a million revelers to hear the sounds of Reggae and Calypso music. They even get a chance to taste a variety of freshly cooked delicacies as well as experience the city’s diversity.
The BET Music Awards winner expressed gratitude for the recognition. Kenzo was in 2018 named Uganda’s tourism ambassador by the Uganda Wildlife Authority. Kenzo’s appointment as tourism ambassador came a month after the singer was named Favorite African Star at the Nickelodeon Kids’ Choice Awards. The father of two donated his Afrima Award 2017, BET Award and KUNDE BF 2015 to Uganda Museum as a way of inspiring the younger generation to dream big and also inspire them to work harder and achieve greater things than him or other artists.
Kenzo was recently dumped by baby mama Rema Namakula who is set to introduce her new boyfriend, a one Dr. Hajji Ssebunya Hamza to her parents in Nabbingo Mubataka on November 14.
