Kenyan musicians planning revolt?
25 June 2014, 16:31
Nairobi - Something seems to be brewing in the industry and it seems
like it could be of a massive, earth shattering proportion.
This came to light
after Refigah posted a picture of himself at the Hotel Kempinski, Nairobi where he
was meeting with over 10 artists, producers and presenters of music
in the country including the likes of Abbas, Mzazi Willy M Tuva, Kenrazy, Miriam, Mustafa
and Rashid Abdala among others.
" At hotel Kempinski planning great things, he said.
Though it is still
unclear as to what they might be working on, it is clear that there is a tide
of change coming with most of the top artists in the country fighting for their
right to airplay on local radio stations.
They have also been up in arms
against radio stations playing West African music and Western music more than local music.
Through some of the biggest producers in the country, change
has been on the lips of everyone, and this move by Refigah to meet up with some
of the biggest names in the industry could just be the beginning of it.
We wait and see.
