Victoria Kimani says Kenyan entertainment industry is in a sorry state. The sultry songbird however blames local promoters for everything.
Victoria has decided to embark on her first ever country-wide tour on her own without promoters. She will be visiting different towns starting with Kisii this coming Saturday March 10th.
“This is my first tour in Kenya. I think i just got tired of waiting for promoters to call me and pay me less than i deserve while asking me to perform as they roll out red carpet and full nine-piece bands for foreign artists.
“I decided to do it on my own with or without the corporate sponsors who unfortunately continue to push these foreign acts and use Kenyan artists as opening acts. I am taking matters into my own hands and going directly to meet my thousands of fans in their hometowns across Kenya rather than wait for promoters to do it for me,” said Victoria Kimani.
E-Sir is disappointed
Victoria also blames local promoters for obstructing Kenyan artists from getting their continental breakthrough. She says E-Sir is shaking his head from heaven.
“Kenyan promoters are holding us back. We don’t have a fiesta that celebrates us. We are always told we are second best and meant to be opening acts only. I think some artists just started believing those lies. I’m sure E-Sir is looking down from heaven and shaking his head at how backwards we have gone,” Victoria said.
