Whatever meaning the rest of you have, to Eddy Kenzo, a semyekozo is a young wealthy man without problems or worries. And looks like after he declared himself the president of semyekozos, Kenzo has found himself a new category of fans. Among them are those that thronged Club Guvnor last Friday where the singer was headlining act at the Ciroc Pop Party.
Despite the low turn up, the mood in the club was sign enough that it was destined to be a good night. Slay kings and queens came ready to party the night away as they sipped expensive drinks and rocked their disco best.
Unlike the previous editions where the headlining acts performed after 2am, Kenzo, in the company of his aides, came to the club at 1am. He first hesitated to enter as he was notified that the club had not garnered the crowd that he had hoped for.
He took his reserved seat near the DJ’s box before comedian Salvado invited him to mix some of his favourite cocktails which he sold to patrons before he took the mic.
The singer started the night with Mbilo Mbilo then went on to perform Soraye, Let’s Go, Zigido, Pull Up and Inabana, a collaboration with Tanzania’s Harmonize.
When he started Semyekozo, everyone got off their seats and invaded the stage. It was a magical moment as the DJ played the song twice, to the satisfaction of partiers. At this point, Kenzo rested his microphone and requested the audience to sing the first verse of the song while his team recorded every moment. There couldn’t have been a better climax for his performance!
