A few weeks back, Eddy Kenzo appeared in a video clip on his social media and assured people how he has sold ‘Luganda’ language globally. He said that among all musicians, he deserves the respect for what he has done for Uganda and Luganda.
Some may thought he was just blowing his own trumpet but truth is he’s Uganda’s biggest export when it comes to music and to prove that besides the awards, his songs are still being recognised abroad.
Just yesterday, his ‘Mbilo Mbilo’ song featured on a recently released movie ‘Holiday in the wild’. The Netflix original film that was released two days ago is an American Christmas romantic film directed by Ernie Barbarash from a screenplay by Neal Dobrofsky and Tippi Dobrofsky. The film stars Hollywood greats like Kristin Davis and Rob Rowe.
Kenzo’s song plays during the main characters’ safari adventure. “A Ugandan song mbilo mbilo in Luganda language from central Uganda trending world wide right on this new Netflix movie. Proud Ugandan. For God and my country,” Kenzo posted.
