Who is a Semyekozo you ask? A Love Nigger? Well, up until Rema Namakula’s flamboyant Oh-Please-Pay-Attention-I’m-Trying-To-Prove-A-Point-Here Kwanjula, we didn’t really know. We thought it was just another of the many good works our lyricists churn. Except, as it turned out, she was throwing jabs at her ex, Kenzo; allegedly.
The public then made sense of the term ‘Semyekozo’ and used how Kenzo had treated Rema as a pilot basis to now define Semyekozo. The term now was used in reference to men who looked good, but were generally unserious with their love lives. Many analogies came forth, of course.
In some, ‘Semyekozos’ or ‘Love Niggers’ were irresponsible, self centered men who only cared about how they looked in order to attract women like moths to a bulb. They didn’t care for serious relationships that led to marriage. They sired children only to give the women they were with the illusion of settling, only they never did. The credit they however got, was the charm, and how they knew how to dress the bit, and how they’d mustered the art of working magic under the sheets.
They’ve been described as a hastily multiplying species in Uganda. And they seem to have found a uniform in their looks. At yesterday’s Abryanz Style and Fashion Awards, a number Of them showed up, perhaps after agreeing in the backend of their cabinet to have a maximum representation at such an event of affluence.
