Singer, Big Talent Entertainment boss and Uganda’s Tourism ambassador Edrisa Musuuza aka Eddy Kenzo is undoubtedly the biggest export Uganda has currently. To affirm this, he is now in a brand new release of Missounwa Remix song, a piece originally from the legendary Monique Seka from Ivory Coast. The song is off his latest Made in Africa album 2021.
Missounwa is a song that most of us grew dancing to and it is a great African classic that sets that mood high even if it is playing now. It is believed that Eddy Kenzo lobbied for this great Missounwa remix or remake on his Made in Africa album 2021 when he was locked in Ivory Coast recently due to COVID lockdown in Uganda.
This is Eddy Kenzo’s latest collaboration song this year and it is set to set for him a new trend on the Afrixan content and beyond. Missounwa Remix comes in days after he appeared on the New York Time square billboard, making him the first Ugandan artiste to appear on the famous billboard.
