Comedian Eric Omondi now claims that the Kenyan music industry took a downturn after the remaining luminaries like popular rapper Khaligraph Jones, singer Bahati and boy band Sauti Sol decided to get married.
"My message is we lost something and my point is together we can find and bring it back. Sautisol, Khaligraph Jones and Bahati you are our only hope but truth be told tangu muoe things have not been the same. I cannot sit back and watch our Industry go to sleep and keep quite," he posted.
Omondi, who was speaking after members of the Sauti Sol crew threw shade at him, stated that everyone had missed his point when he posited that Kenyan musicians are lazy, predictable and redundant.
According to Omondi, the aforementioned attributes have led to a takeover of the Kenyan music industry by Nigerian and Tanzanian artistes.
His remarks have attracted myriad of reactions across the music industry, with a section of musicians asking him to accord them the respect they deserve.
According to Savara Mudigi, a crew member of the Sauti Sol boy band, the Kenyan music industry is currently growing and will soon flourish like in other nations.
Savara joined his counterpart, Bien Aime, to rubbish the comedian's opinions about the entertainment industry. They stated that Omondi is only out to court attention and chase clout by trashing Kenyan artistes.
