Musician Lord Fred Ssebata is officially the king of Kadongo Kamu.
This after he emerged victor in a Kadongo Kamu competition, organised under the Operation Wealth Creation program, which concluded at Kololo Independence grounds on Saturday. Performing in front of a mammoth crowd that included young and old, Ssebata managed to impress the judges and beat competition from 24 others to walk away with the ultimate prize of Ugx 50 million.
Shortly after being crowned winner, an exuberant Ssebata noted that, “I am overjoyed and I know this Operation Wealth Creation project will go far,” amid cheers from the crowd.
Vicent Segawa was the first runners up and walked away with Ugx 25 million. In third place was Silvesta Busulwa who was rewarded with Ugx 15 million while Mathias Walukagga came fourth bagging Ugx 10 million.
The ceremony was presided over by IGP Gen. Kale Kayihura who commended the Operation Wealth Creation coordinators for using musicians to deliver the message of wealth creation to the masses. He noted that through music the message will easily reach the common man and that this project will be instrumental in mitigating criminal activity as more youth will now have work to occupy them.
The Kadongo Kamu competition which was launched in October saw Kadongo Kamu singers put their brains to work aiming to compose a compelling song that would inspire Ugandans to embrace agriculture.
Operation Wealth Creation is coordinated by Gen. Salim Saleh and aims at mobilizing the masses to engage in commercial agricultural activities to boost their household incomes for poverty eradication and sustainable wealth creation.
