Fena Gitu goes ham on Kenyan artistes for Snubbing her Album listening party
“Kenyan artistes barely show up for fellow artistes. There were like four artistes (one who is my best friend so it doesn’t count) at my listening party, and a handful last night Elani Muziki’s listening party. And we want our fans to support us. Anyway, album is for fans” she wrote
Her sentiments come just weeks after singer Willy Paul also called out cartels running the Kenyan music industry.
According to Willy Paul, the said cartels determine which artistes are invited to functions and which ones get awards.
“Too much love F****K all the cartels in this f****kn industry.
f***k all the industry cartels, look at all the love in this video!! ever wondered why some of your favorite artists are not in some events that’s you’d expect them to be in? it’s because in Kenya if don’t dance to a cartel’s tune then you are an enemy. if you act like you know your worth your an enemy, if you keep your brand high you’re an enemy, if you release hits you’re an enemy, if you they call you for a deal and you don’t give them a cut you are an enemy, and they’ll end up giving that space to someone who doesn’t deserve it.. this is so sad.. yaani it’s about who knows who!!! what’s happening to our industry??? let’s mention names.. this has to stop!! if we don’t fight now, the next generation and our kids are gonna suffer very badly!!!! IM HERE TO STAY COZ THE LOVE AND AMOUNT OF WORK IS REAL!! #VOI” he said
