When Kenyan artistes were calling on the media to play more Kenyan content, boy band Sauti Sol received attacks from personalities that claimed they don’t help the music industry.
When the dust settled on that matter, Sauti Sol went on to release the mother of all suprises, they launched their record label and singed super vocalist and song writer Bensoul.
Bien hit back at Sauti Sol’s critics asking why they are now silent when they can use the same hype to promote new talent.
“Bensoul is out with a hit, I have not seen any of the people who were criticizing Sauti Sol talk about his song, or even play his song. They have not even talked about Sol generation. So were they just politicizing the whole thing or were they just riding on the hype.” He said.
Bien went on to urge artistes and media personalities to learn to iron their issues privately rather than airing their dirty linen in public.
“You cannot straighten your brother’s collar in public, The industry should follow policy, we should work all work together. In this industry some people just want to stand out not for their work but by bringing down their colleagues.” He added
