We did not see this coming. Eddy Kenzo shared his HIV (Human Immunodeficiency Virus) results with the public to counter various reports from tabloids and bloggers who have been claiming that his recent bedridden state is because his HIV positive.
Edrissa Musuuza is not new to blunt attacks from the media. He has for long been aimed at by a few tabloids, journalists and bloggers with a couple of wrong reports and rumors. Apart from the time when he hit back physically against Kasuku’s false rumors, the Stamina’ singer has always kept his cool and avoided retaliation. Not this time though!
Eddy Kenzo was reported to be suffering from a killer disease according to Kamunye, a local tabloid. They wrote that the singer has been on medication but not following his doctor’s prescriptions and it is the reason he suddenly fell ill to the point of being admitted for days at Case Clinic. He actually missed performing at the One Africa Music Fest in London because of illness.
On reading the news, the Big Talent Entertainment CEO immediately found his way to Nakasero Hospital, carried out blood tests, and published them on his social media platforms. According to the tests carried out on 6th June, Eddy Kenzo is not suffering from the killer diseases as reported by the tabloids and he is HIV negative.
Kenzo is not the first celebrity this year to come out publicly to defend his HIV status after Meddie Ssentongo did the same a few months ago.
