Looking at his Social media handles -Kenzo has over 18,000 followers on Facebook, 236,000 on  twitter and 106,000 on instagram.

With that success under his belt and a giant fan following world wide , Why did Eddy Kenzo chose to have his Concert at a Small Venue ( Hotel Africana) which according to those in the know, accomodates only 4,000 people at full capacity ?

In 2013 and 2014 , Eddy Kenzo staged successfully Concerts at Kyadondo Rugby grounds, a venue that Occupies about thrice the people Hotel Africana can house.

Kenzo's fan base has notably grown rapidly since October 2014 when he staged his Kamungulze Concert at Kyadondo rugby grounds. If his Social media fan following is anything to go by, Eddy Kenzo can fill Lugogo cricket Oval to capacity. Lugogo cricket Oval,according to a credible sources occupies about 18,000 people.


It should be remembered that Kampala capital city Authority ( KCCA ) suspended Concerts at Kyadondo grounds. According to past stories written on various blogs, the reason for the draconian move is noise pollution and lack of a parking Space. Kyadondo club Management will have to settle the pending issues with Jennifer Musisi if any Music Concert is to be held there again.


Lugogo cricket oval is just a stone throw away from kyadondo rugby club, It absorbs about 15,000 to 18,000 people, according to a credible source.

" Kenzo is too small to fill Lugogo cricket oval, Only Chameleone can stage a successful Music Concert at the Venue " says, Dixon bond Okello ,a renowned security personnel and events guru.

He adds that Majority of Kenzo's fans are youths on Social media and are very unreliable.

"People can support you on Social media and fail to turn up for your music Concert " he observes.

Stage Lights and Sound ,cost above ugx30M for a good Setting at Lugogo and kyadondo, the Source adds.
