Jalang’o blasts Kenyan musicians for shoddy music

Comedian Jalang’o has tongue lashed Kenyan musicians for their lack of creativity in producing and marketing their songs.

The radio presenter was adding his voice to a conversation started by rapper Khaligraph Jones on how Nigerians would not recognize Kenyan artistes.

Jalang’o blasted Kenyan musicians, saying they do not even launch their music to their family members let alone fans.

He claimed some local artistes who got a chance to meet Bongo maestro Diamond Platnumz during the Wasafi Festivals were begging for selfies instead of collabos.

“Before music is scheduled on radio it is researched on and all we do is play! The other day we were involved in making our playlist, I posted here asking you to help us and the results were shocking almost! 50% Bongo 40% Naija! Today on Apple Music there are only 6 Kenyan songs in top 100 Kenya! So hata hiyo pia ni ma presenters na djs wamepanga?” he questioned.

Jalang’o offered a word of advice to local artistes.

“But the question is how did we get here to NAIJA and BONGO? Marketing! Aggressiveness! And getting out your comfort zone! If you are still depending on Radio and Tv to make you big then you have nothing in this industry! There are too many avenues! YouTube, Spotify,Apple music..then we have social media platforms! Diamond launched his Album in more than 10 countries some of you have not launched even for your family! We can’t play what we don’t know!” he wrote.

@khaligraph_jones is planning a trip for presenters and media personalities to NAIJA to see if they have fans there since we play too much Naija and soon the next trip will be to bongo! Yes we don’t have fans there but before you start blaming us! Did you know that presenters don’t even choose music played on Radio and if they do they have very little say on what goes on air? No you dint! Before music is scheduled on Radio it is researched on and all we do is play ! The other day we were involved in making our playlist, I posted it here asking you to help us and the results were shocking almost! 50% Bongo 40% Naija! Today on Apple Music there are only 6 Kenyan songs in top 100 Kenya! So hata hiyo pia ni ma presenters na djs wamepanga? But the question is how did we get here to NAIJA and BONGO? Marketing! Aggressiveness! And getting out your comfort zone! If you are still depending on Radio and Tv to make you big then you have nothing in this industry! There are too many avenues! YouTube, Spotify,Apple music..then we have social media platforms! Diamond launched his Album in more than 10 countries some of you have not launched even for your family! We can’t play what we don’t know! I personally has hosted and booked you guys for events and paid you guys for shows even if it’s little ,I have done my part! The other day @thekingkaka launched his Album they dint even show up and the other day saw them begging selfies with Diamond just like they did with Neyo instead of asking for collabo! Khaligraph you know what hard work is and what it took you to be there! Sautisol dint have to depend on us! Hii ni 2019 na mkiendelea hivi mtatukuna saana! Link on my bio support @officialmasauti_
