Fresh Kid: I’m studying to be one of Uganda’s permanent secretaries




Budding child rapper Patrick Ssenyonjo popularly known as Fresh Kid says he’s studying hard to become a permanent secretary besides his musical career.

The 7-year-old sensation singer said after meeting Permanent Secretary Ministry of Gender, Labour and Social Development, Mr Pius Bigirimana at his office on Thursday.

During the meeting held at the Ministry headquarters in Kampala, Bigirimana agreed with the Banteeka singer, his parents (Paul Mutabazi and Madrine Namata) and promoter to draft a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) that stipulates the roles, responsibilities and interests of each party.

Bigirimana revealed that among the many aspects to be itemized are the percentage of sharing proceeds from performances, the commitment to continue with school, hours for performances and hours reserved for resting to avoid exploitation.

The PS was reportedly categorical on the need to ensure that Fresh Kid, whose latest stride has been a nomination for an international award in the Carolina Music Video Awards 2019, sees through the scholarship offer he got to study at Kampala Parents School of Ruparelia Group.

“The draft MoU is to be reviewed in the coming days before the official signing takes place. While at the meeting, Fresh Kid got chance for a moment in the Permanent Secretary’s official seat where he expressed gratitude at the gesture and promised to study hard to become a permanent secretary besides his musical career,” reads a statement issued by PS’ press team.

Fresh Kid’s parents and the promoter appreciated the consultation saying it was a great step to formalizing the partnership between the two entities.

Fresh Kid has taken over the Ugandan musical scene ever since he sampled out his free flowing rapping skills.

Carolina Music Video Awards 2019 are scheduled for July 20, 2019 at the NASCAR Hall of Fame High Octane Theater in Charlotte, North Carolina.
