Popular Jamaican artist Konshens has taken a swipe at comedian Eric Omondi following his recent online campaign geared at ensuring that local artistes get more airplay in Kenyan radio and TV stations.

In his statement, Konshens sought to know why the funnyman was opposed to foreign artistes making trips to Kenya.

He further poked holes on Omondi's concerns, asking him if he was upset that Kenyans were showing too much love to international artistes or if he was upset that they were not giving enough support to local artistes.

"Nobody is trying to milk your county, your country just has a crazy love for all genres of music and a respect for artistry that is why artistes love it there. I had 4 offers for December 31st all way closer to home but I chose Kenya because of the raw vibe and energy," he posted.

Konshens further debunked the talk that Jamaican artistes often come for events in Kenya when their pockets run dry. He stated that the mutual love between them and Kenyan fans should not be mistaken for capitalistic opportunism.

"You should be direct with what your real issue is instead of these "Trump like" tactics. Lets talk one day. Or maybe you are joking? But if you are serious lets open a line," he added.

On his side, Eric Omondi stated that he has nothing against International artistes. He stated that he was only concerned that the Kenyan music industry is currently on its knees.

"I have no problem with Konshens. My issue is our own messaging. We have been killing our own," he stated.
