Legendary singer, Awilo Longomba performed in Uganda in a sold out concert at Kampala Serena Hotel on Friday evening .
While on stage, the superstar applauded local musicians, Eddy Kenzo and Jose Chameleone for their efforts in selling Ugandan music and culture to the rest of the world.
The 'Lingala' star went ahead to beg the two artistes to promote young promising stars because it is their role as big artistes.
“I love Uganda. I love you Kampala. You are blessed to have big stars like Chameleone and Eddy Kenzo. They are doing well on big stages but they must promote young ones because it is their role as big musicians,” Awilo Longomba said.
It should be noted that while addressing the press upon his arrival, Awilo said he only knows two musicians from Uganda; Eddy Kenzo and Jose Chameleone because they are international.
