I wanted to show talent doesn't decay, Juliana on performing with Sweet Kid

Juliana Kanyomozi said she convinced Sweet Kid to perform at her recently concluded concert because she wanted to show the world that talent doesn't age.

Real name Moses Sserwada, Kid was a surprise act at the Kanyomozi's August 19 concert held at the Kampala Serena Hotel.

No one saw it coming because the Hip-Hop crooner had taken a long break from music to concentrate on business and he had been rejecting requests to perform at shows.

"That one is my long-time friend, and I wanted to bring him for you to see that talent is talent. Even if he takes [forever]. You saw how people were excited to see him," Kanyomozi told journalists at Winnie Nwagi's concert on September 9.

"They were so happy to see him because he is still the Sweet Kid they know from way back"

Asked if she expected to see the many revelers that thronged her show, she said: "Yes, I expected it because I know my people love me and they have supported me for a while."

In an earlier interview, Kid said he had initially hesitated but Kanyomozi was relentless.

"She called me and told me I want us to surprise revelers,... and I told her, but I don't want to sing... And she told me, you know, do this for our fans... And we harmonised, rehearsed, and I performed," he said.

Kanyomozi, who collaborated with the crooner on a 2015 reggae ballad titled Silina Mulala, has said she almost knelt down to convince him to perform.

Sweet Kid, however, didn’t regret the decision to share the same stage with his long-time friend.

"I felt so, so good because Juliana Kanyomozi is my friend from a long time ago. We've been to lots of concerts together, here and abroad. There is that chemistry that binds us," the Silikyusa singer said.

Sweet Kid, who says he was inspired by reggae singers Wayne Wonder and Kevin Lyttle, said he performed with Juliana Kanyomozi "out of love".

His other popular jams include Abakusigula, Akadde, Kankutwale and Malaika Wange.
