Ugandan musician, Edrisa Musuuza alias Eddy Kenzo is trending for all the wrong reasons after he hit a fan with a microphone.
The ugly incident happened recently while he was performing during his 'Eddy Kenzo Festival' in Fort Portal.
In a video doing the rounds on social media, a reveler is seen pouring a drink on Kenzo who was on stage performing his 'enjoyment' song.
Agitated by his action, Kenzo lost his cool and threw his microphone at him. In the short video, his security is seen getting into the crowd and charging toward the reveler.
The singer is yet to break his silence regarding the incident but took to social media to thank his fans after the show.
Judith Heard is also an artist who defended Kenzo saying measures have to be taken to help curb attacks on artists.
The star termed the incident as a wake-up call.
She wrote, "Before we lose an artist on stage or a fan in the crowd. This was a wake-up call. He was pushed to the limit but this could be turned into some big case."
She added "We shouldn’t be laughing about this. Ugandan musicians y’all need to figure out how to end this. Next time that fan will pour acid on the artist or the artists group will hurt the fan."
A couple of fans have since rallied behind Kenzo, with one fan named Baba Raho saying, "Guys under no circumstances should anyone ever pour drinks on anyone. It's a sign of disrespect."
Another fan 'Luoboyollo' added, "Sometimes the fans are enjoying that way and performers take it differently because it’s been a stereotype."
Kim Jordan wrote "But the way Kenzo threw the microphone in the crowd, he never thought twice. Maybe it caught someone innocent not even the one who poured."
