“The constitution clearly states that no one under the age of 18 is allowed to work therefore Fresh kid should not be working rather be in school.
Children who are below 18 years are not allowed to perform and enter in clubs, so I am going to do everything possible to stop kids from performing and entering clubs. Anyone found aiding his music career will have to face the law as well,
I take this opportunity to warn all of you who are engaging children in things like this and renting them houses, you will also be arrested according to the law”, Florence Nakiwala stated.

He also stated that Fresh Kid attends school regularly and that he performing during the weekends doesn’t affect his studies.
Francis disclosed that he discovered Fresh Kid in the rural village miming songs and later decided to bring him to the city to help him pursue his music career and also started paying his school fees.
