Dancehall singer Karuga Kimani, better known as Krg The Don, might have all the money in the world but one thing he can’t buy with it is talent.
I know some of you who are reading this article are his fans and it will definitely anger you but you see, someone had to say it, too bad that it had to be me.
If you Google Krg The Don, you’ll see many articles about his pricey cars, houses and whatnot. Interestingly, there is no article where he is referred to as a talented artist because he’s just not.
This lad is filthy rich and that means that he has no problem paying studio fees or shooting a video as is the case with most local artists. I’m sure he even pays double because he has deep pockets.
What this implies is that he can release a track whenever and as regularly as he wants which is a problem because he ends up giving his fans mediocre music.
To me it seems like Krg The Don does music to pass time the same way you and I, who are not as loaded as he is, can watch a movie or go swimming when we are bored.
More often than not, his lyrics are flat and uninspired. At times, his whack songs leave me wondering why he can not hire a songwriter with all the money that he has. Isn’t money a solution to all problems?
To be fair though, Krg The Don has an amazing voice and he has the potential of becoming one of the best dancehall artists not only in this country but the whole of Africa but I think he just doesn’t care.
