Top East African singer Eddy Kenzo is undoubtedly the biggest star in Uganda, with his hit songs that have received massive airplay not only in Africa but also globally.
Eddy Kenzo came into the limelight with his popular song ‘Sitya Loss’ which is a favorite to many, to this day. One of the reasons the song got such high views was because of the children who danced in the video.
The humble singer had taken some very talented slum kids to feature in this video instead of taking professional dancers and gave them the chance of a lifetime to show their acts on a viral music video.
Sadly, one of the main dancers in that song by the name Alex, passed away yesterday, Nov 30 after he was involved in a grisly road accident which left another dancer, a girl by the name Patricia fighting for her life.
Alex has been in several of the singer’s videos including; Mundeke Numbe, Zivuga, Jambole, Sitya Loss and his recent hit, So Good.
The young boy was in the Triplet Dancers group also known as the Ghetto Kids dance group and according to reports, he had just completed his Primary Leaving Examinations. How sad!
Eddy Kenzo has really been affected by the death of the boy and shared this sad news about his death on social media:
