Eddy Kenzo must have been cut from a totally different cloth from other Ugandan artistes. The way he keeps signing these high profile deals and acquiring the top spots in everything he does is phenomenal. He has been placed as the new Uganda Tourism Ambassador.
His early life must have been one to forget, but right now, Eddy Kenzo must be living among the stars in the clouds. Just last year, the multi-award winning artiste signed with the Kenyan Tourism Board as the Kenyan Tourism Ambassador, in a deal which was to see him promote Kenyan tourism across borders.
This led to mixed reaction from some Kenyans who felt betrayed by the KTB since the country itself has various Kenyan celebrities who could have played the same role, and a few Ugandans who felt betrayed by the Big Talent CEO. The deal however went on as the contract dictated and what a year it was for Eddy Kenzo!
Yeesterday, Eddy Kenzo was picked up by the Uganda Tourism Board and awarded the Uganda Tourism Ambassador. In this new development, the singer is expected to export Uganda’s tourism across borders and as well use his music and fame to; influence tourists to visit the Pearl of Africa, promote the Uganda wildlife conservation, among other defined roles.
The ‘Jubilation’ singer celebrated this honor with his fans online in a social media post with the caption;
It was a pleasure working with Kenya Tourism Board(KTB) #MagicalKenya thank you for trusting me KENYA. As we all know, East or West home is the best. Today we embark on a new journey as I sign as the UGANDA TOURISM ambassador. I shall work hand in hand with all tourism departments to promote our tourist attractions, and I’ll continue flying the Uganda flag so high with God grace and mercy. Thank you MY UGANDA.For God and my Country.
Congratulations Eddy Kenzo!
