“I want to thank all our partners and the two gentlemen who have stood their ground to make an important statement about HIV stigma in this generation. We are all aware that HIV is still prevalent, and the fight is still ongoing. It is an honor to support an initiative of this kind championed by our talent. “King of the Mic” demystifies how we communicate this kind of information to young people – we believe that the 2030 vision to end HIV is alive. We are very committed to helping amplify the awareness about HIV in Uganda,” Kigozi said.

 

MC Kats, who profoundly came out in 2019 about his HIV status, confessed that stigma is the hardest part about living with HIV,

“I faced and digested it, but I have a support system that has helped me through this journey. I hope I inspire someone out there to live life and work on their dreams. Taking your meds is the way to go. I pray this goes on beyond just the concert.”

Next Media Services Head of Brand and Communications, who was the press launch’s moderator, said, “Today is a great example of the reality that is HIV – we see MC Kats who in his right is a legend on the categories of TV presentation, events MCing, and artist management before HIV continuing to do amazing things while living with it, matter of fact being one of the personalities that pushed us to remold our weekend night shows to what we know them as today. He still turns up for work daily, doing extra shifts – HIV is indeed not a death sentence.”
