On receiving the good news of the Grammy nomination, Kenzo ran and posted on his different social media platforms: “Isn’t God so good banange? Uganda is in the Grammys.”

He also shared a video of himself and his team alongside Matt B in a room celebrating the nomination in high vibes and spirits.

As the good news of the nomination spread, lots of people; from celebrities to fans have come out and shared congratulatory messages on their different social media platforms.

Kenzo is nominated in the same category as musicians like; Arooj Aftab $ Anoushka Shankar (Udhero Na), Burba Boy (Last Last), Rocky Dawuni FT Blvk H3ro (Neva Bow Down), Wouter Kellerman, Zakes Bantwini & Nomcebo Kikode (Bayethe)
