Self proclaimed King of the Mic and NBS TV presenter Edwin Katamba alias MC Kats has come out to reveal why he had to open up to the world that he is living with HIV/ AIDS.
While speaking to blogger Isma Olaxes a few days ago, Kats said that he opened up to the world by accident therefore it was not his intention to do so.
The NBS After 5 Presenter explained that he was triggered by his fellow work mate Kayz because he was posing questions related to his status. He says that he was capable of suing him for that.
“After that interview, many people actually didn’t believe it. They said I was berserk, considering what I was going through at the time, I had to come back in subsequent interviews to confirm what I had said earlier. I realized then that there was no turning back. I embraced it,” he explained.
MC Kats said that before publicly revealing it to the world, He had lived with HIV for eight years.
He however made it clear that all his baby mamas and children including Singer Fille Mutoni are not infected.
“All my six children and my baby mamas are safe and negative, if you think that I am lying and defending them, come and see the results at the museum on Sunday where I will be emceeing a show.” He said.
The last few years have seen MC Kats turn into a strong activist against HIV AIDS. The Celebrated Mcee revealed early this year that he has been living with AIDS for over 8 yeras. MC Kats becomes one of the very few public figures in Uganda the world to openly talk about his status
This declaration shocked many as it is not common for a public figure to come out and declare their Health status to the world but Kats has become an extra ordinary human being who has learnt that anyone can live happily with HIV, he has ever since become a strong pillar to all Ugandans living positively.
Following his revelations as an HIV positive man, his career remained unhindered and has went on to become one of the most celebrated emcees in the industry.
