Following Eddy Kenzo’s scathing remarks about Bebe Cool during his press conference, Bebe Cool has responded by calling the Sitya Loss star ‘large size’ and said that he feels constantly compared to him.
“If we were to group Eddy Kenzo with Afrigo Band, Bebe Cool, and Jose Chameleone, in what category would you place him?” Does it not occur to you that he is an up-and-coming musician? Bebe stated in a recent interview, “Since I have been in this profession for so long and you people believe that remaining at the top is simple, I have seen a lot of artists come and go.”
The Old Skool singer also boasted that he and Dizzy Nuts were the first Ugandans to be nominated for the UK’s MOBO international awards, and if awards were everything, Juliana would have hundreds of them because she is a thousand times better musically than he is.
Bebe continued by stating that the public has placed so much emphasis on Kenzo and requested that they give him time to see if he can withstand the test of time.

Edrisah Musuuza, whose given name is Eddy Kenzo, was born in Masaka, Uganda. His mother passed away when he was four or five years old, and he spent the last thirteen years primarily on the streets of Masaka and Kampala.

In 2008, Kenzo began recording music under the artist name Eddy Kenzo. Together with Mikie Wine, he released his debut single “Yannimba” that year. In 2010, he released a second song entitled “Stamina.”
During the 2011 general election in Uganda, numerous politicians utilized this song as their campaign anthem.
At the 2011 Pearl of Africa Music Awards, Kenzo was named Best New Artist.

In July 2017, he sponsored two charity football matches featuring Victor Wanyama in Masaka and Kampala. The event generated donations for HIV-positive Ugandan children.
He launched the Big Talent Soccer Academy in Kampala in March 2019.
The Academy recognizes talented local youngsters and gives instruction to help them develop their skills.
Kenzo started dating Ugandan recording singer Rema Namakula.
Rema Namakula and Eddy Kenzo had a daughter on December 26, 2014, at Paragon Hospital in the Kampala district of Bugoloobi.
Kenzo, who has another daughter (Maya Musuuza) from a prior relationship, admitted paternity and gave the infant the name Amaal Musuuza.
Midway through 2019, Kenzo and Rema separated, and Rema quickly became engaged to her previous physician, Dr. Hamza Ssebunya.
