Songstress Irene Ntale has expressed her dissatisfaction about comments made by Edrisah Musuuza alias Eddy Kenzo after the BET award winner revealed that he is a bigger star than Philly Bongole Lutaaya.
While at an interview, the Big Talent Entertainment singer claimed to have the biggest songs in Uganda and used YouTube views to claim superiority over the late legendary singer.
Irene Ntale particularly fails to wrap her mind around his claims and she believes Kenzo’s pride is getting to his head.
“It’s at this point that I lost all the respect that I had for that man,” Irene Ntale said.
“Did Kenzo really compare himself to Philly Lutaaya? Wow, this industry keeps getting more interesting.”
“One Grammy nomination and the man said he’s bigger than Philly! Man pride is such a bad thing,” she added.
Eddy Kenzo made these remarks upon his return from the USA where he made history as the first Ugandan to be nominated at the Grammy awards. He said that he redid Lutaaya’s song ‘Born In Africa’ to give it a push.
“I remade Philly Lutaaya’s ‘Born In Africa’ not because I wanted it to elevate me to another level. Personally, I have achieved my goals in music,” Kenzo said.
“I have songs that have 100s of millions of views. His song has just a million views after so many years. That means Philly has no song that is bigger than any of mine. Numbers don’t lie,” he added.
