Edrisah Musuuza, also known as Eddy Kenzo, was born in Masaka, Uganda in 1989 and began his music career after overcoming a difficult upbringing.

In several interviews, Eddy Kenzo has always described his story as “zero to hero.” Eddy Kenzo was born to a poor Ugandan gateman and a Rwandan refugee mother who died when he was only five years old.

As a result, he was forced to take to the streets and fend for himself. It took him more than ten years to reconnect with his father and brother (who recently died this year).

Later, while working as a ball boy for a soccer academy team, Eddy Kenzo would hide under the bus seats as he made his way to Kampala, the capital of Uganda. Eddy Kenzo joined the Sports Club Villa academy in the hopes of becoming a football player, where he believes his star will shine even brighter.

Every night, he mostly dozed off beneath the stadium seats. Kenzo would even sell drugs in order to supplement his needs.

He succeeded in music rather than football, though. When they first met in 2008, Mike Wine, Bobi Wine‘s brother, provided opportunities for him.
