Ugandan singer and BET Award winner Edirisa Musuza alias Eddy Kenzo has said Ivory Coast’s largest city, Abidjan, is his new home.
The singer got stranded in Ivory Coast after the closure of borders by the Ugandan government in mid March due to the coronavirus pandemic.
Kenzo in a tweet, said he is no longer bothered by the the lockdown and travel ban in Uganda as he is used to Ivory Coast.
“Life bwekuwa Lemon nga okola Lemonade, Nasalawo okwerabira siri waka, ekyo Nakivako Kati Abidjan is my home, oba lockdown eri koma oba nedda I don’t mind kati ndi weno Ivory Coast, I got used and I think you can see my pictures I look more relaxed now and I’m happy to be here”Kenzo tweeted.
The artist made the statements after President Museveni announced a 14 day extension of the lockdown after the initial 14 and 21 days had elapsed.
Kenzo had earlier requested the Ugandan government to allow him return to the country citing high number of infections in Ivory Coast, high cost of living and frustration as his “Eddy Kenzo Festival” was postponed due to
coronavirus yet he had injected millions.
