Kenzo runs Big Talent which helped Omutujju in his early stages in the music industry. They also have a song together called Muliro, on which they feature DJ Shiru.
Gravity ranks Kenzo Uganda’s number 1, says Bebe is 7th, after King Saha
Gravity Omutujju retracted his proclamation that he is Uganda's number one artiste. He has now 'given' that position to Eddy Kenzo.
"I didn't say I'm Uganda's number one [he said it in an interview after the concert], Uganda's number one could be Kenzo," Omutujju said while speaking to reporters in a video seen by this reporter.
Asked which number he is, he replied: "I don't know. But I may be number... Kenzo is number one, Bobi Wine is number two, [Jose] Chameleone number three, [David] Lutalo number four, Gravity number five."
Gravity didn't mention Bebe Cool among the top, so he was asked to rate him.
"He's like number seven, after [King] Saha. We enjoy his music, I'm not saying his music is not good, but even a good dancer [leaves the stage]... He is good, he sings better than me. He is so great, but things change."
After his concert, which was held this past Saturday, the rapper took aim at Chameleone, Cool and Wine, saying they are no longer relevant in the industry because they have become lazy and they aren't supporting fellow artistes anymore. He now says his comments were misconstrued.
"I didn't attack them, I was just being honest... Sometime back without Chameleone, Bebe Cool, Ragga Dee, and Bobi Wine a show wouldn't happen, but now it's possible," he said.
Someone pointed out that Bobi Wine promoted Fik Fameica's concert and the others have also been supporting past concerts.
"But they fear me, they organised a clique of three, Bebe Cool is Chameleone's friend, Chameleone is friends with Bobi Wine, they are three friends and they call each other to talk about how they'll keep on top of the industry. But God has helped us and opened our eyes. In the process of feeling good on us, they've helped us," he said.
Asked about rumours that he doesn't support Wine's political endeavours, he said: "I support Bobi Wine politically [and] musically. I support him and I love him so much... I would have been happy to see him post about my concert on his pages like he has done with others."
The Enyama singer said that on top of meeting Chameleone in person, he called him and texted him multiple times to support his concert but he was noncommittal.
"I called Chameleone... Doctor, I called you and asked you to promote my show. I even met you at a show in Nansana. I told you to help me, you are big, you are our father, you're my boss, you're everything, and he told me he'll see. I even sent him messages and he wouldn't respond," the Nyabo singer said.
"But he promoted David Lutalo's concert, he also promoted that of Fik Fameica."
Events promoter Balaam Barugahara, who organised his show told him to start respecting his elders in the industry, but Omutujju said he won't apologise.
"I won't apologise. the whole industry is not going to keep rotating around three people, one is a politician, the other is Chameleone, who is so, so great, but right now he has no music."
Gravity Omutujju has claimed his concert had over 30,000 revelers, but he has struggled to validate the numbers every time he is asked.
