KAMPALA – Singer Eddy Kenzo has announced a massive demonstration-protesting ‘reckless’ comments by outspoken Muslim cleric Sheikh Nuhu Muzaata.
Kenzo spoke in a live Facebook address that started at 4:00 PM Ugandan time on Tuesday, October 15, 2019.
Kenzo who is expected to return to Uganda on Tuesday, October 22 says he will hold a peaceful demonstration.
He has also asked human rights activists to help him in what he defines as a struggle to clear his name.
Muzaata on Independence Day congratulated Rema for her newfound love and went ahead to hint on her past relationship with Eddy Kenzo, suggesting that the latter is a love nigga who should, in turn, marry his mother.
Whereas Muzaata did not mention any names, social media users claim he was sending an indirect message to Kenzo.
In a live address, he also vowed never to perform on a stage in Uganda until Muzaate retracts statements in which he is alleged to have said that the artiste may be gay
Kenzo said Sheikh Muzaata’s words have caused him untold torture and humiliation.
“I apologise to everyone affected by the ongoing saga but I didn’t mean it. I am tortured by Sheik Muzaata’s words and I don’t know how I can get onto the stage to sing for my Ugandan followers,” Kenzo said.
“He should come out to clear the air about what he termed me as. I won’t get onto the stage to sing in Uganda until Muzaata retracts his statements towards me.”
The singer wondered why Muzaata continued to ignore the fact that Kenzo was officially wedded in a religious function with Rema Namakula.
“Unless he is blaming me for not doing the traditional wedding or introduction but for a religious one, the function was done long ago. I am tortured by Muzaata’s words. I have made the decision without being forced that I will never sing on a Ugandan stage until my death unless he retracts his statement,” Kenzo vowed.
Kenzo also claimed that “Mafias’ want to finish him before 2021 polls.
“These people want to kill me so we can reach 2021 when I can’t say anything. They pay for my music not to be played. They have also bought some people to abuse me for nothing,”Kenzo said adding that “people have been hiding behind my family problems to ensure they bring me down.
“They were given money to pretend to be relatives to her(Rema) husband to frustrate me and later poison me so it can be reported that I committed suicide. They want to poison me.”
