"To the glory of Allah and his mercy, today is a great morning for me and my fellow East Africans who were nominated in Africa's most prestigious awards, MAMA. I would like to congratulate my fellow East African artists...Sauti Soul, Diamond Platinumz,Vanessa Mdee upon this height."
"I there for call on all East Africa's music fans, media houses, artists to combine into one musical army Team East Africa to vote for all our nominated artists in their categories because we all in different categories and it would make a lot of sense to have the four accolades come to East Africa."
'I would also like to call upon all Ugandan artists and their teams to join me in the fight to bring this accolade back home as we have had Blue 3, Navio, Radio and Weasel nominated before but they did not bring the accolade back home because we did not combine forces for the good of the Ugandan music industry."
