Singer Edrisah Musuuza also known as Eddy Kenzo has missed out on being the first Ugandan to win Grammys.
Kenzo was nominated in the 65th annual Grammy Awards for his “Gimme” Love song which featured American singer, Matt B, for the best global music performance.
In his category, Kenzo faced competition from Udhero Na by Arooj Aftab and Anoushka Shankar, Last Last by Burna Boy, Neva Bow Down by Rocky Dawuni featuring Blvk H3ro, and Bayethe Wouter Kellerman, Zakes Bantwini and Nomcebo Zikode.
However, South Africa’s Wouter Kellerman, Zakes Bantwini and Nomcebo Zikode, were announced as winners.
In a tweet, Kenzo noted that he is grateful saying it’s just the beginning.
“And the baby went to South African thank you for the support my people I’m forever grateful. Viva Uganda. This is just the beginning mbagala nyo (I love you so much),” Kenzo tweeted.
Meanwhile, singer Tems became the first Nigerian female artist to win the prestigious Grammy Award.
Her compatriot Burna Boy lost in the two categories he was nominated.
Tems, whose real name is Temilade Openiyi, won the award in the Best Melodic Rap Performance category for her contribution to the hit song Wait for U – a collaboration of musicians Future and Drake.
