This year, Eddy Kenzo's birthday falls on December 25 and his better half Rema Namakula had the best message.
"Happy Birthday to my best friend, my ride or die,Taata wabaana. Thank you so much for not being perfect coz I'm not perfect either which makes our journey even more interesting. All I want is for you to enjoy this day and others ahead. The family and I love and treasure u to bits.May you live to see my grey hair and our grandchildren. Happy Birthday my love, my king."
It's kind of a shocker that it's the first time his birthday is being celebrated today, but like Rema puts it, they are both not perfect. Wikipedia indicates Kenzo's date of birth as April 9, 1989 but his better-half states otherwise.
Kenzo's story is rather magical as stated on his official website which interestingly does not indicate when he was born.
"At the tender age of 4, Eddy lost his mother who meant everything to him, he was forced into living as a street kid for more than 13 years because he did not know where his father was. As a homeless child he had to survive on the streets on his own because he did not know anyone from both sides of his family and music was his safe haven."
Safe Haven indeed. In the 2011 presidential elections, Kenzo's 'Stamina' hit was the campaign theme song for the ruling party, NRM just like Tubonga Nawe currently, but the BET award viewer's choice winner still rides on his 2014 hit song Sitya Loss with over 15 million views on YouTube.
Meanwhile, Kenzo's second child and Rema's first will turn one on Boxing Day.
