When you think of Eddy Kenzo, first class flights, flashy cars, prestigious awards, an enviable music career, a huge mansion, etc are the first things that come to mind.
But this has not always been the case; if anything, the BET award winner is a true ‘rags to riches’ story who is proud of his inspirational journey and where he came from.
Kenzo, who has often paid visits to the people living in ghettos, visited his childhood home in Kyotera on Sunday December 2, where he lived with his mother before she passed on.
The singer who documented the emotional visit to his followers has revealed that they were evicted from the house a few days after his mother’s death because they could not afford to pay the rent.
“Today I visited the house I lived in with my mother before she died, we were evicted a few days later because we couldn’t afford rent…lots of memories in this place, with God everything is possible. Congs maama we made it,” Kenzo posted online.
But fast forward, years later, he lives in a two storied luxurious mansion with his baby mama Rema Namakula and their 2 children, a stark contrast to his dilapidated one room childhood home.
If this is not a true inspirational story then we don’t know what is!
