How Nyamutoro organised Eddy Kenzo’s 2022 Kololo Festival

A lot of new information is starting to emerge about the nature and depth of Eddy Kenzo and Minerals Minister Phiona Nyamutoro’s relationship.

Phiona Nyamutoro (R) played key roles at Kenzo's 2022 festival at Kololo

Both figures have come out to deny romantic involvement which has been rumoured since late last year.

But to some of the followers, their explanations have been less than convincing.

New details are now emerging on how Nyamutooro has been part of Kenzo’s music career, at least in the recent few years.

The youthful legislator from West Nile was reportedly one of the front-persons at the Eddy Kenzo music festival at the Kololo Independence Grounds.

The concert took place on November 12, 2022, and was a huge success given the sheer number of people that attended, nearly filling up the vast ground.

Kenzo memorably addressed a press conference days after the festival, where he broke down in tears as he thanked his fans for showing up.

It is understood that Nyamutoro, who then was only a freshman legislator representing youths in parliament, was a key part of the machinery that put the show together.

According to reports, Nyamutoro was in charge of many aspects of the festival including gate collections and logistics.

In a radio interview late last year, Nyamutoro admitted to having known and worked with Kenzo at a professional level for a long time.

She has also used her position in government to push his interests including the law on copyright, which he has been lobbying for through his Uganda National Musicians Federation.
