Kenedy was born in Bissau, Portuguese Guinea. During his extensive career, he represented in his country S.L. Benfica – making his Primeira Liga debut at only 19 – FC Porto, C.F. Estrela da Amadora, C.S. Marítimo, S.C. Braga (January to December 2004) and Académica de Coimbra.
In 1996, Kenedy had his first abroad stint, with Paris Saint-Germain F.C. in France, starting regularly for the capital club as it finished second in Ligue 1. Subsequently, he represented Albacete Balompié – only three matches for the Spanish second division side – APOEL FC, Ergotelis FC, Kallithea FC, Aias Salamina F.C. and Peramaikos FC.
On 17 March 2015, Kenedy was handed his first managerial post at C.D. Pinhalnovense, eventually helping avoid relegation from the third division. He was hired by second level strugglers Leixões S.C. on 2 November 2016, taking the team to the quarter-finals of the Taça de Portugal where they were eliminated by his former club Benfica after a 2–6 away loss.
Kenedy represented Portugal at the 1996 Summer Olympics, helping the nation finish fourth in Atlanta, Georgia. He was called up to the 2002 FIFA World Cup squad while still uncapped on the senior level, but was dismissed from the team prior to the start of the tournament, after failing a drugs test.
