Anne Kansiime, Eddy Kenzo bag more accolades


Both Eddy Kenzo and Anne Kansiime have spent most of the past month swinging between Europe and America. Unlike several local entertainers that only perform before small Ugandan audiences, Kansiime and Kenzo keep flying the Ugandan flag high as they perform before huge mixed nationality audiences wherever they go. Last weekend, Kansiime co-hosted the AFRIMMA awards alongside Nigerian and continental comedy star Basket Mouth in Dallas, Texas US.
And as she was planning her next show, the bubbly comic received a call that she had won a big award- an African equivalent of the Oscars. Kansiime was declared the winner of the Favourite Comedian Award in the prestigious Nollywood and African Film Critics Awards (NAFCA), also dubbed the African Oscars.
According to Kansiime; “the ‘Africa Oscars” aka NAFCA are designed to globally promote African cinema and culture. They awards are considered the highest internationally recognised prestigious African awards in Hollywood.”
On the other hand, Kenzo, also currently in the US, received his accolade for Best African Act that he won at the just concluded 10th edition of the Annual Nigeria Entertainment Awards (The NEAs). Although held over a month back, Kenzo only managed to receive his accolade over the weekend.

    am very happy to read this and very sure that ugandans will have to make to the top

    Anne Kansiime will win the African Entertainment Award because Eddy Kenzo told his fans to vote heavily for Anne Kansiime if they don’t Cheat like how Afrimma gave the awards to Diamond even though his fans kept hacking into Eddy Kenzo’s fans and voted into their names and i was one of the victims of such act which i did report several times and Afrimma looked the other way. Another disturbing act was when Diamond’s fans used to make comments after voting saying Afrimma, BET and MTV voted for Diamonds when it was a conflict of interest if indeed they had voted for him. How can Afrimma vote for him when they were the host? It was in the comments over and over again and i have emails which i sent to Afrimma about the hacking.
