Ugandan BET winner Eddy Kenzo drops two videos off his album ‘Roots’

BET award-winning Ugandan sensation Eddy Kenzo has released two new hit videos titled ‘Signal’ and ‘Ogwo’ featuring Wembly Mo and the phenomenal dancers from his foundation.

These two tracks are off his seventh album ‘Roots’, released in 2018 and both capture his ardent love for dance, sound, and style.

‘Signal’, a magnificent love ballad shot at an undisclosed exquisite palatial home was directed by multi-award winning South African video director Justin Campos while ‘Ogwo’ was captured in the vast and vibrant countryside of Uganda. It is a captivating analogy of African law keepers and suspects as the prisoners’ plot an audacious escape through their infectious moves in pursuit of education.

Speaking on the tracks, Kenzo said ‘’ I’m excited to share the two videos with the rest of Africa and the World. ‘Signal’ is a very beautiful love story. Big shout to my brother Wembly Mo and the wonderful dancers from his foundation for capturing the spirit of dance and sound of Uganda, we had so much fun making ‘Ogwo’.’’

Eddy Kenzo is famed for putting together one of East Africa’s most viewed videos, ‘Sitya Loss’, which also launched a group of young dancers known as Ghetto Kids. Infusing local sounds into the popular afro-beat and dancehall genres make this young man stand out. Some of his popular hits include ‘Stamina’ and ‘Yanimba’.

Following his BET Award win for Best New International Act in 2015, Kenzo went on to amass a slew of international awards including the African Artiste of the year at Nigeria Awards 2015, Best Music Video at Uganda Entertainment Awards 2015, Best Use of Social Media by an Artiste Hipipo Music Awards 2015 and Best Video of the Year African Entertainment Awards USA 2015, among others.

Kenzo has also performed in several countries around the work, including at the SXSW 2015 in Austin, Texas, the Africa Cup of Nations in Equatorial Guinea, Gabon, Ivory Coast, UK, and Cameroon.
