Uganda took home the season 1 of East Africa Got Talent after Esther and Ezekiel carried the prize home. The two have been singing as duo in the family.
The competition is part of the Got Talent franchise owned by Simon Cowell. It drew participation from Rwanda, Uganda, Tanzania and hosts Kenya.
The show became the topic of a heated debate in August after the Burundi government accused a group of Burundian refugees of illegally playing the country’s famous traditional drums on the show.
