If there is anyone the news of lockdown extension has hurt most, it is Singer Eddy Kenzo.
immediately after President Museveni made a pronouncement, Eddy Kenzo went to twitter and vented his frustration to the extent of staking his vehicle for financial help.
Kenzo also said he is at a high risk of contracting coronavirus.
“I was watching president adding more 21 days of which mutufu kubanga kiyamba egwanga naye nze sigenda kufa banange who can send me western union. Muwe emotoka yange otherwise siri bulungi. Eno tugenda mu 700 cases.” Kenzo lamented on twitter.
Kenzo is trapped in Abidjan, Cote d’Ivoire following President Museveni’s pronouncement of a lockdown that involved closure of airports two weeks ago.
Kenzo cried out that he has no money left, and staked his vehicle to anyone who is willing to wire money to him.
The BET Award winner says the cost of living in Ivory Coast is high and he has to spend not less than $300 daily to survive.
In a video he shared recently, the “Tubaale” singer admitted that he can no longer afford a meal yet he traveled with his guitarist, and left a sick child at home.
It was however reported that he was warned not to travel to Cote d’Ivoire at that time, but he refused only to have the festival cancelled due to coronavirus.
