For days now, Kenyan Comedian Eric Omondi has been advocating that Kenyan artists be given first priority where he asked all media channels to play 75% of local music. He even staged a riot outside the parliament which saw the bold buddy arrested but was later released.
Konshens, a Jamaican singer is expected in the country on 30th December to perform along other artists. He sent a long message to Eric Omondi after he ruled against foreign artists performing in the country.
In his message Eric told the singer that he had no beef with any foreign artist but just wants to revive the Kenyan industry.
"My brother @konshens because you are a very SMART and CLASSY guy I will tell you the TRUTH about my ISSUE. HERE IS THE TRUTH BRO!!! You JAMAICANS, TANZANIANS and NIGERIANS have TOTALLY and COMPLETELY OVERPOWERED our ARTISTS. I don't blame you, NOT AT ALL. Our Artists are LAZY, REDUNDANT, DORMANT and lack the SPIRIT and WILL to PUSH or even DO MORE or BETTER...The Thing is we are TRYING to REVIVE it and in Order to do that I feel PROMOTERS OUGHT to SUPPORT our AGENDA by PUSHING ARTISTS as well," Eric told the Jamaican singer.
