Singer Wycliff Tugume alias Ykee Benda has disclosed how unhappy he feels, ever since the 50-year-old ‘new kid’ on the block Paul Mutabaazi, aka Fresh Daddy joined the music industry.
According to the Muna Kampala singer, Fresh Daddy acted like a ‘ninja’, used his son’s fame (Fresh Kid) to build his brand, and currently he is overshadowing him given the social media hype he is receiving lately.
“I am honestly one of those people who are not happy with this whole hype around Fresh Daddy especially how it’s to affect his kid,” he tweeted. “But you have to give it to the guy….he saw a window and the ninja went right through it. How long that will last! I don’t know but the guy is a real Kampala born.”
Fresh Daddy, made a ‘breakthrough’ in the music industry with his one verse song titled Mazike, while his son had gone to Dubai for a show.
And though Fresh Kid is back in the country, media is giving him less attention than that they give to the father.
Benda joins Francis Kamoga, the manager of Fresh Kid to criticize Fresh Daddy’s intentions of staying in the entertainment industry.
During an interview recently, Kamoga claimed that the former manicurist will soon distract his son’s fans, which will later kill his music career.
“When Mutabaazi starts singing, there is a way he will distract Fresh Kid’s fans, him being in the industry has a lot of effects to the Kid’s career. Ever since Fresh Kid was taken away from me, media can be my witness, a lot of complaints on Fresh Kid and his father have been reported more than his music,” he said.
However, despite the negatives, Fresh Daddy is not planning to give up his dream of becoming the next Uganda’s Eddy Kenzo or Chameleone, as he advised people to just give him a chance and try out this new venture.
“This is to all music lovers in the industry, please don’t deny me a chance. It’s never too late and the Bible talks about a woman who gave birth at the age of 90, I am trying my luck. Recently two young boys killed a boda boda man for a Bajaj Boxer of only Shs4m, I Mutabaazi Paul from Luwero I am looking for money in the right way without hurting anyone,” he said.
