Popular Ugandan child rapper Fresh Kid has enrolled at a new school in the capital, Kampala, reports the state-owned New Vision newspaper.

Seven-year-old Fresh Kid, whose real name is Patrick Ssenyonjo, was at the centre of controversy in March after Youth minister Florence Nakiwala told him to put down his microphone, and to concentrate on his schooling.

The principal at his new school, Kampala Parents School, promised to ensure that he struck a balance between his music career and his studies.

“We do not want him to come to school when he is very tired and fails to concentrate. We want him to always have time to rest and do his work,” principal Daphine Kato was quoted by New Vision as saying.

Fresh Kid was a pupil at St Agnes Primary School, and switched to the high-end Kampala Parents School after obtaining a scholarship, the newspaper reports.

He attended a press conference held on Thursday to announce that he had joined the school, and a tweet @Fresh Kid UG said: “Smiles as Fresh Kid UG enrols at Kampala Parents School.”
