Eddy Kenzo's fans had vowed not to vote for Bebe Cool in the MTV Africa Music Awards (MAMA) 2015 where the Byebyo singer is nominated in the Video of the Year category for his Love You Everyday song.
Eddy Kenzo's better half, Rema Namakula, has come out urging Kenzo's fans to vote in big numbers to bring this one home too. "We had no idea that he was bringing the BET award home so let's not give up. Keep voting and voting BEBE COOL for video of the year. Be Blessed together we got this," Rema wrote on her timeline.
On the other hand, Kenzo has also appealed to his fans to do the same and also not forget Chameleone who has been nominated in the Evolution category as an icon battling top shots like 2-Face, Fally Ipupa and P-Square to mention but a few.
In Bebe Cool's message that has since gone viral, he cited the double standards that Ugandans exhibit when it comes to voting..
"Recently after his nomination, We all as Ugandans got together and voted for him hence the win, and immediately after the win, his misguided fans have gone around saying they will not vote for Bebe Cool because he called Kenzo an upcoming artist 2 years ago, and that's the kind of hypocrisy some Ugandans have."
Meanwhile, just in case you were wondering, Bebe Cool and Rema have been tight from the time she was still backing up veteran artist, Halima Namakula way back during the Ekimbewo days, she was still under 18 then. Bebe noticed the potential in her and very quickly recruited her to the Gagamel Band only to be fired later when she got sooooo close to Eddy Kenzo.
These were Rema's words after being fired from the Gagamel Crew:
"I hereby extend my gratitude to my dear mentor Mr. Moses Ssali. You have always been my guidance and it hurts to say goodbye in such a way but I believe your training will always guide me throughout my journey and I promise to make you proud one day. I will always be your girl."
Surely, Rema has not forgotten where she came from...
