If you listen to music on the radio, chances are you'll hear a lot of lyrics that don't match the ones on the original album recordings. When songs get profanity, obscenity or references to drugs or sex removed for broadcast, it's a process known as clean editing. Kenyan Music Industry it's really Growing but with the wrong Audience. We need to go international Get More airplays on Major Tv stations around the world not just home.
The 25-year old seasoned music promoter also reemphasized on his passion for not just the Kenyan music industry but the world’s at large.
He also Talked of ; Sex, violence, drugs, politics, religion and just plain loud noise have all been grounds for music censorship. Whether referencing taboo subject matter, challenging the government and commercialism or just upsetting the masses (directly or indirectly), Fact is that musicians are targeted out of fear of their power over listeners.
My plan is to invest more in music real business. Kenyan music is gaining massive international recognition and now is the time to tap into it.
