United States of America Kampala Embassy yesterday sent condolences to the family and friends of Alex Ssempijja, one of the Ghetto dancing kids that featured in Eddy Kenzo’s Sitya Loss video who died on Monday evening in a tragic bicycle accident.
The embassy said it had a pleasure of working with Alex during a concert with Eddy and the American bluegrass band Henhouse Prowlers at the National Theater in May in a brief statement posted on the embassy Facebook page yesterday.
“We are saddened to hear about the sudden loss of Alex Ssempijja, one of the talented young dancers in the ‘Sitya Loss’ song by Eddy Kenzo. We had the pleasure of working with Alex during our concert with Eddy and the #American bluegrass band Henhouse Prowlers at the National Theater in May,” the statement reads, adding, “Our thoughts and condolences are with Alex’s family and friends.”
At the time of the accident, the 14 year old Ssempijja was with his fellow dancer Patricia who is now in critical condition after sustaining serious injuries on the head.
