If you ever thought tribalism was a thing for the older generation,then you thought wrong as it has now sneaked in to the most unlikely environment-the music industry.
Now,if you still not on the know,there is a new collabo hit reigning our airwaves dubbed “Papa”. The song,which is barely a month old is a masterpiece combination of the Elani music band featuring celebrated Kenyan Shakespeare, Kaka Sungura. The song seeks to recognize and celebrate fathers.
So, there is this Twitter User going by the name Tswana Warrior @kenyatours77 ,who has just earned himself an arrest warrant by attacking Rabbit for collaborating with Elani on the track over tribal grounds.
Tswana Warrior through a tweet told Rabbit to stop collaborating with Elani since they are from a different tribe. To add salt to the injury,he went ahead to tag Rabbit and Elani in the tweet, Something that rubbed the “Mtu Ivi Ivi” rapper badly.
The rapper,who was pissed to the edge and the tweet cutting his stomach is now seeking Police intervention to the engraved “tribalistic fan” for spreading tribalistic hate speech shamelessly.
“My name is KennedyTarriqOmbima, I am Kenyan.nakuwanganaTabiaFlani, when I meet someone I never ask what your tribe is unlesssikumojauropokwebut I will never ask. I remember very well in 2007 just before the elections we were from a gig in Kisumu with Chiwawa thanks to Ade, boarded a newAkamba bus and on the way the bus was stopped several times and the people were bitter and that’s when I saw tribalism kwa macho. Tribalism Ended up killing over 1000 people hivyo tu. We Co-Exist in this small growing country of ours, I mean Kuna corruption which we are still fighting, economy iko messed up, employment Ni shida na kadhalika. I mean like many other countries pia wako na shida zao. now some people may not agree with me but hiyo Nishida yenu. We have over 40 tribes for a reason, in the over 40 we all have our differences, our differences make us unique…” reacted Rabbit via social media.
“LET’S END THIS STUPID TRIBALISM BY ARRESTING SUCH PEOPLE AND LOCKING THEM UP! NOT ONLY IS IT SUCH A BAD THING TO DO, BUT IT’S ALSO AGAINST THE LAW FOR ANYBODY TO PREACH ETHNIC HATE. ARREST THIS PERSON,” Further concluded King Kaka in fury.
So far Kilian Nyambu of the National Cohesion and Integration Commission has been contacted to facilitate apprehension of the Culprit as soon as possible.
