Fresh Kid’s father Paul Mutabazi and his manager Francis Kamoga have signed an agreement with an aim of settling their differences.
In an agreement drafted by Onyango & Company Advocates, the two parties agreed that the seven-year-old Patrick Ssenyonjo will study from Monday to Friday and; the manager will only access him on weekends, public and general holidays.
The agreement also indicated that it is the responsibility of the father to ensure that the child (Fresh Kid) attends all classes in school and he (Fresh Kid’s father) must accompany his son to all venues of performance.
Fresh Kid is a Primary Two pupil at Kampala Parents School (KPS). He joined the school on a full scholarship from the Ruparelia Foundation. The foundation effected its scholarship in May this year through signing a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with the rapper’s parents.
“The child must also be allowed at least eight hours of rest after performance or training and; he must not perform after 10.00 pm and; he is not allowed to perform in bars or adult themed venues,” the agreement partly reads.
The father and the manager also agreed that a bank account would be opened in the ‘bambi’ singer’s name where 20 per cent of all income will be deposited and the child will access it when he reaches the age of consent of 18 years.
According to the new agreement, the manager and father will each get 20 per cent from the rapper’s income; to cater for the father’s maintenance, and manager’s salary respectively.
30 per cent, it has been agreed, will go to the management and administration of the talent and; the remaining 10 per cent will go to Fresh Kid’s mother.
Since last month, the two parties have not been in good terms following Mutabazi’s outrageous demands from Kamoga. He asked for a car, house and a job or he forgets about the rapper.
He went ahead and ‘kidnapped’ Fresh Kid, according to the rapper’s mother Madrine Namata who also cried out for government help.
This situation was made worse after Fresh Kid’s song writer 14K Bwongo expressed his disappointment in Mutabazi’s move to take the rapper from Kamoga’s residence in Kawempe.
While appearing on NTV’s Live Wire recently, Bwongo alleged that through ignorance, Fresh Kid’s father is dragging his son’s talent down.
