What started off like a small message on the Internet is now a big argument between Kenyan comedian Eric Omondi and Jamaican singer Konshens. Eric in the fight to help Kenyan artists get back on track told foreign artists to give us a break so that they can regenerate themselves.
In his message he directly mentioned Konshens and the singer was not happy with it which prompted him to reply to Omondi's statement.
"Blessings my friend. i find this very interesting. Many people are sending your words to me. Would love to sit down and hear what exactly your issue is, are you upset with international artists for loving your country? Local artists and promoters for not doing enough shows? Local fans for showing too much love to international artists or not showing enough support locally? Or what? Nobody is trying to milk your country, your country just has a craazy love for all genres of music and respect artistry that's why artists love it there...," Konshens's long message read in part.
He also added that he had four concerts near his country but chose to come to Kenya. Konshens further told Eric that it is not that at their home they are poor and the reason for choosing Kenya is because of their great support.
Do you think it was right for Eric to leave such a message to international artists even though he was trying to help our own? Feel free to leave a comment in the comments section below.
