World music has not really been embraced in Uganda as it is for other genres like Hip Hop, dance-hall and afro-beat despite the fact that it has some of the most talented musicians in the industry.
But this hasn’t stopped world musicians from commenting on things related to the industry.
According to Joel Sebunjo, an instrumentalist and musician, Eddy Kenzo might have borrowed Dr Hilderman’s ‘Mazongoto’ song to come out with his ‘Volongoto’ tune.
He says that the songs sound so much alike.
“Hildaman”, the new song by Kenzo “Volongoto” sounds so close to Double Bed Mazongoto. Are you the composer? Oba amattu gaffe gali mu enfuffu (or our ears can’ hear well) …Just asking for a friend,” posted Sebunjo on his facebook timeline.
Eddy Kenzo’s song has received a lot of mixed reactions, just days after its release, with many saying it’s going to put him in a lot of trouble because it hits the government.
