Gengetone stars have been facing a ruthless fight from different institutions regarding their music. Groups such as Ethic, Sailors, Uchongulo Family and many others have been under constant attack because of their lyrics and videos.
This has however not demoralized them as artists have continued to release new music and prove they have talent. Gengetone singers have now switched to working with gospel artists such as Bahati and Mr Seed to show that they can be diverse.
Gengetone artists have now made another big move to ensure they keep controlling the Kenyan airwaves. Courtesy of events promoter, Mtetezi, all Gengetone musicians are uniting for a major concert dubbed Gengetone Festival which will go down on April 10 at Machakos People’s Park.
The event will see the likes of Lengadnary singer Juacali, who is the father of Gengetone, team up with youngsters like Katelo, VDJ Jones, Willis Raburu among others to celebrate Gengetone in Kenya.
With such kind of unity, it will very hard to end this genre as much as they are getting little airplay from the media.
