Is Rema’s New Song About Eddy Kenzo?
Singer Rema Namakula released a new song tittled,”sili muyembe” loosely translated as ‘I am not a mango’ which has left fans wondering what these lyrics are really about.
The song depicts a man who is taking her woman for granted ,and not appreciating the valuable person he has. It also warns that if this behaviour continued, other suitors would swoop in and steal the good thing he has taken for granted.
Fans have now concluded that the song is definitely talking about Eddy Kenzo who has been in a relationship with Kenzo for a while now, and have a child together.
