Nairobi - If you thought this year’s Groove awards
would go down smoothly and without drama, think again. Cultural gospel singer
Lilian Rotich, who had been nominated under the category of Artist of the Year
Rift Valley Province, has turned down her nomination.
The gospel singer gave
her reasons via social media, explaining that she had been nominated more than
8 times (without winning) and that it was now time to shine the light on other
growing talented artists from the region.
" Dear Friends, Greetings.
While in my short holiday in Mombasa, it has been brought to my knowledge that
I was nominated last night at the groove awards as the Rift Valley counties
artist of the year. For the past 8 years running, I have been nominated in this
category and even though I have NEVER won, I acknowledge that it has projected
my ministry to the national and international platform. However, I believe
that there is so much talent in this region and specifically the Kalenjin community.
I have participated in mentoring over 123 artists from the region and these
talents are equally good with hunger to grow and bless souls," she stated.
