“At the time, they were with their primary school teacher. I found them in Namasuba late in the night and I was touched. I don’t wish to bring up her name, but I was with Rema and she is my witness. When we got home, I got in touch with the teacher. I went and created that song and put them in the video.” He said.
Although he admits he has not been able to be with them all along the way, Kenzo says his intervention paved the way for the group’s current status and he is proud of what they have become.
