Esther and Ezekiel Mutesasira East AFrica’s Got Talent
The two were registered for the EAGT competition by their aunt who believed in their talent. According to Esther it was their aunt who first noticed her talent as she was singing in front of a mirror in their home.
When asked about how they got to know about the competition, Ezekiel said; “I did not know anything about the competition until my aunt Babirye mentioned it to my sister and I. By the time she saw the advert, it was one week to the end of registrations. Aunt Babirye recorded us singing and sent the video to the organisers. The next day which was May 19, she took us to Pearl of Africa Hotel for auditions. On June 2, we received a phone call confirming that my sister and I were among the 30 Ugandans who had been nominated for the competition.”
The competition is part of the Got Talent franchise owned by Simon Cowell. It drew participation from Rwanda, Uganda, Tanzania and hosts Kenya.
Esther and Ezekiel EAGT Winners

When earlier asked by media what he plans to use the money for upon winning East Africa’s Got Talent, this is what Ezekiel said: “I will first give tithe to God, build a home for the disabled and orphaned children and use the remaining money to process the required travel documents to Canada. I want to visit my mother.”
East Africa Finale
Vanessa told the kin path back toward the beginning of the competition that “something unimaginable is going to occur” and that it was going to begin at East Africa’s Got Talent. The group of spectators shouts when they got out their names toward the beginning of the finale appear, additionally pointed towards where the prize cash may go. At last, it wasn’t a shock to anybody.
So guaranteed of their ability and capacities, the Mutesasira kin tested themselves much further when they went for Whitney Houston ft Mariah Carey’s When You Believe tune at the finale. It takes self-conviction to try and endeavor; not to mention change easily and impeccably this troublesome melody to such flawlessness as the kin did. Not that Kenya’s young warbler Jannell Tamara and Spellcast who amicably figure out how to arrange more than 40 voices and bodies were awful, yet the Mutesasira kin were basically the best.
