Kenyan veteran musician Hubert Nakitare aka Nonini has called out Kenyan musicians who have been quiet ever since the Play Kenyan Music debate started.
Nonini has termed them as sellouts because they are afraid to offend their friends by speaking the truth yet they are not standing for themselves or for future artists in the least.
Taking to his social media account, godfather wa genge said he has zero respect to those Kenyan artists who have remained silent as serious issued are being raised.
“And then we have Kenyan musicians who like sitting on the fence whenever any meaningful industry discussions are taking place so they don’t lose their friends. A bunch of sell outs. We see you,” he wrote.
