The State Minister for Youth and Children Affairs Hon Florence Nakiwala Kiyingi has called on the youngest Ugandan rapper Patrick Ssenyonjo a.k.a Fresh Kid for private counselling.
Speaking to media, Hon. Nakiwala Kiyingi said the government will have to examine Fresh Kid to find out if he has not been subjected to drugs.
We will have to test that boy to see if he is ready to do the music business because he may be under the influence of drugs which is dangerous to a boy of his age- Hon. Nakiwala speaks
Hon. Nakiwala made the remarks after the social media backfire from the public which pointed fingers accusing her of being jealous of the kid’s talent.
She added that they will also have to check his brain growth to see whether he is able to juggle the stress that comes with being a schoolgoer as well as performing at music shows.
The law only provides for those aged 12 and above to be taken to a remand home if found in conflict with the law.
