Leyna Kagere gets East Africa’s first golden buzzer

By Jillo Dida

The judges at East Africa Got Talent: Kenya’s Jeff Koinange, Tanzania’s Vanessa Mdee, Uganda’s Gaetano Kagwa and Rwanda’s DJ Contact Makeda were absolutely blown away by the performance of a little Ugandan girl with an angelic voice.

The girl who’s only 7 years old goes by the name Leyna Kagere . She performed ‘one day at a time’ by Meriam Belina and killed it on stage as everybody was impressed by her angelic voice and her courage. The crowd was moved and they justwcouldn’t stop screaming and cheering for her.

She was also the first performance of the night to receive the golden buzzer. Kagere clearly impressed not only the judges but also the crowd.
