Reggae DJ Kriss Darling has received backlash after attempting to win Opposition party leader, Raila Odinga’s favor ahead of the contested Kibra parliamentary seat.
The renowned reggae DJ shocked many after he went down on his knees before the former Prime Minister in pursuit of the Kibra parliamentary seat.
The ODM party leader converged with the Kibra residents as he introduced aspirants contesting with the party’s ticket for the vacant seat.
DJ Kriss Darling had earlier expressed his interest to run for the position. Further kneeling down before ‘Baba’ seemingly begging for his support and seeking endorsement for the November 7th by-election.
Amidst the jeering from the crowd, a fearless DJ Kriss Darling shouted:
…Let them shoot me if it means that you remain and lead in 2022…I ask that you hold my hand Baba…
Perturbed fans called out the reggae DJ for the act with all manner of trolls:
Stupidity of highest order …
True rasta no kneel to no man
this is what we need to change! Raila is not a demigod! you don’t get elected by kissing his ass! the people of kibra should be given the chance to elect there mp! Odm is not a democratic party! u lick baba or ur out! wajaluo na hiyo akili yote Mungu amewapea if one day they wake up and realize this nonsense Kisumu ingekua capital city ya Uganda,tanzania na kenya smh nkt
DJ Kriss Darlin am your biggest fan and nothing would make me more happier than seeing you clinch the Kibra ticket BUT kneeling before a human being is degrading! @RailaOdinga is not a god
Kneeling to man is lack of self respect not mind game.
The 1st man i have seen kneeling before a fellow man just because of something called POWER!!!
God forgive us for we have sinned before your eyes
The stupidity of the highest order!To kibra people, vote for this zombie at your own peril! The only reason everyone loved Okoth is that he never worshiped anyone and he stood for a course! Hii Chris darling ni cabbage, just want to get elected but is empty-headed and nothing to offer
Is the guy even a party member of ODM? Kibra should reject him at an instant. This is the next Aisha Jumwa.
If you kneel before God in heaven, you can stand before any man. Kriss Darlin ameniangusha….why kneel?
Celebrated musician, Suzzana Owiyo came to his defense on Monday tweeting:
Well, I don’t see the problem in kneeling down. Kriss Darling needed to prove himself at the moment! In a podium like that & being new in the game, you must find a way to be different. I wish him plus other candidates well! Kibra politics not a joke.
Kriss Darlin is set to contest alongside 26 other ODM hopefuls for the Kibra parliamentary seat ticket.
