Ugandan soul singer Maurice Kirya has weighed in on the Saturday evening incident where fellow singer Micheal Ross was bundled and kicked off stage by bouncers during the Johnie Walker Soul Safari.
The events unfolded when Micheal Ross jumped on stage as American singer and song writer Ginuwine performed one of his last songs at the concert. Ginuwine was the headlining artiste at the show.
“Even though I performed on that stage, Myko deserved that stage better than anyone else!” Kirya wrote on his Facebook page.
The self named King of Mwooyo [soul] described Ross as “our own Ginuwine, our own Usher and our Michael Jackson.”
“When I was younger, Myko and I would meet at my mother’s house and practice dancing. I wasted so much time before I realised my dancing sucked, but Myko?… he had the gift, he emulated Ginuwine to the dot and would even un-button his shirt to reveal his skinny chest and six packs to screaming adoring fans.”
“He dwelled into the world of dance un-apologetically, we embraced him, we got so close to him before he realized he let us get too close to him!”
“Deep down inside I know that Myko is our treasure, an icon, a legend, a star that tells out very own Ugandan story of resilience, I praise him now, because it’s on days like this when he needs his true friends, and true fans!”
