KAMPALA – Uganda’s youngest rapper Patrick Ssenyonjo alias Fresh Kid has been nominated in International Award in the Carolina Music Video Awards 2019.
The fast-rising rapper gained a nomination in the category of the best video for the month of April.
The video for his song titled ‘Bambi’ which was a dedication to Minister for youth Nakiwala Kiyingi as a request to allow him [Fresh Kid] sing despite his young age, seems to have yielded him fruits.
The awards set out to provide a platform for indie music artists from every genre annually and they also recognize exceptional artists from other countries.
Other Ugandans that got a nomination include Feffe Bussi for his song ‘Yes, No’, Lydia Jazmine for ‘You & Me’, and Ykee Benda for ‘Singa’.
Several Americans are also nominated in the same category and it will be such a great feat if any of the Ugandans can notch the prize.
The awards are slated to happen on July 20th 2019 at the NASCAR Hall of Fame High Octane Theater in Charlotte, North Carolina.
The 7-year-old rapper who has been schooling from a local school also recently grabbed himself a scholarship from Ruparelia Foundation boss, Rajiv Ruparelia to study from Kampala Parents School, one of the best primary schools in the city.
