Konshens Trades Words With Eric Omondi Over Inviting Foreign Artists to Kenya

Jamaican artist Garfield Spence popularly known as Konshens has traded words with President of comedy in Africa, Eric Omondi.

Eric Omondi has been pushing for Kenyan acts to be respected and given more opportunities as compared to their foreign counterparts.

Omondi is of the opinion that Kenya has big artists and they should not curtain raise for any foreign acts.

This comes after many foreign artists announce they are coming to Kenya; mainly from Nigeria, the UK, and Jamaica.

Kenya has for a long time now become the hub of entertainment in Africa where everyone wants to eat the piece of the cake.

After Jamaican artist Konshens announcing that he is coming to Kenya, Eric Omondi blasted the promoters for not using Kenyan musicians in the end of year party.

"HONESTLY are we doing this BADLY😥😥😥😥😥😥😥😥 Is the State of our MUSIC Industry REEEEALY THIS BAD???????? I really have nothing against International ARTISTS my HEART is PROFUSELY BLEEDING for our INDUSTRY. You HONESTLY want to tell me that a @khaligraph_jones @otilebrown @realshinski CONCERT cannot pull Crowds on the LAST DAY of the YEAR," Eric Omondi wondered.

Responding to Eric Omondi Konshens said that Kenyans love him and that is why he is coming to Kenya.

"Nobody is trying to milk your country, your country just has a crazy love for all genres of music and a respect for artistry thats why artistes love it there, i had 4 offers for Dec 31st all waaaaay closer to my home and less of a hassle but i chose KENYA because of the vibe and energy there and im sure i can speak for other artistes to say nobody is broke at home waiting for Kenya to call lol, we just love your country and your people and they love us back," he said.
