Veteran rapper Nonini has blasted Kenyan musicians who have opted to stay silent in the ongoing “Play Kenyan Music debate” because they are afraid of their friends who work in the media.
Kenyans entertainers have been arguing about the state of the industry and how presenters are not helping local artists. The heated debated has lasted a week now as artists and presenters look for a lasting solution.
We are taking note
Nonini believes that while some artists are busy debating, others are just silent because they are friends with presenters and they don’t want to cross them.
“And then we have Kenyan musicians who like sitting on the fence whenever any meaningful industry discusions are taking place ndio wasikosee mabeste zao. Bunch of sell outs tunawacheki #ZeroRespect You might be comfortable with status Quo but think about it for a minute its not about you. Maybe your Son or Daughter might one day decide to be musicians what kinda environment will they find #PlayKenyanMusic #2019 #TWT#TeamWagengeTrue,” he said on social media.
The heated argument has sure helped artists increase airplay in radio station as more and more media houses have promised to play local music.
