Singer Eddy Kenzo emphasizes that one does not need to have a master’s degree or any other form of academic qualification to become an influential figure in society.
Eddy Kenzo, who is currently walking the talk after being listed among the 100 Most Influential Young Africans, believes that all you need to become influential is to maintain a positive and good spirit towards other people.
He adds that loving, sharing and caring for one another will always and gradually lift your name high to the ranks as well as setting you free.
The BET Award winner was joined by two other Ugandans; Nancy Kacungira a BBC news reporter, and Super Sport journalist Usher Komugisha on the 100 Most Influential Young Africans’ list.
Kenzo joked about how he will issue corporal punishment to his children if they fail to surpass his already set achievements in their future:
I want this success to challenge all the people of my generation to do greater in our communities for a better tomorrow. You don’t need a master degree to be influential in your community. You always need a Good spirit towards other people. God is in all of us, loving, sharing and caring about others will set you free.
Congratulations to me, my team, the fans, my country and Africa at large. Once a street kid in Uganda, now one of the most influential young Africans. Thank you God. My kids (are) in trouble if they don’t do better than me in future. Kiboko hahahaha I’m kidding.Eddy Kenzo
