One of the artistes who started music at an early age in Uganda is Rachel Kiwanuka, popularly known as Rachel K. The former comedian, TV presenter, dancer, and musician believes that Fresh Daddy is wrongly riding off Fresh Kid’s fame.

Fresh Daddy, real name Paul Mutabazi, rose to fame over a month ago with the release of his song titled ‘Mazike’. Honestly speaking, the song went viral not because of its content but the controversy that surrounded the ‘Fresh’ family.

Fresh Daddy’s fame is greatly attributed to his son Patrick Ssenyonjo a.k.a Fresh Kid who took 2019 by storm for his talent as a young rapper. A few months down the road, Fresh Daddy was inspired by his 8-year-old son.

According to several critics, the arise of Fresh Daddy led to the fall of Fresh Kid as media turned their attention off the little star and unto his father who is being managed by Kalifah Aganaga.

While appearing on Urban TV’s Salon Talk show, Rachel K expressed her discontent with Fresh Daddy revealing how she did not even believe her ears the first time she heard that he was joining the music industry.

Rachel K (32) started music at an early age in 2005. She was mentored by her mother, Halima Namakula who was a famous musician in Uganda back in the day.

She has praises for Fresh Kid whom she believes is a very talented youngster. She however has no kind words for his father, Fresh Daddy, who has exploited his son’s fame to start his own music career at the age of forty.

I feel like he is riding off his son’s fame. The son is talented, young and he (Fresh Daddy) is taking advantage of that spotlight. I feel like he should have just been behind and supported.

I actually thought it was a joke. I didn’t really think it was a serious thing for him taking on the music industry.
