Rising stars ‘Ethic Entertainment’ who are known for hits such as ‘Lamba Lolo’, ‘Instagram’ and ‘New Position’ have lost a lucrative deal with Hype Fest.
‘Lamba Lolo’ hit makers lose lucrative deal after mob justice drama
The video went viral on Sunday.
The organizers claimed that they had cancelled the crew over legal issues.
“Due to ongoing legal issues regarding @ethicentertainment they will not be featuring at @thehypefest,” thehypefest posted on their Instagram page.
This news comes a few days after one of their group members Swat was beaten for allegedly stealing. News that the group refuted by saying that Swat was seated outside their house at night when the police came and started arresting young men they found outside.
According to them, Swat and one of his friends then decided to run away from the police and that is when they went hiding inside a random apartment. When the neighbours spotted the strange boys in the building they started beating them and almost set the boys on fire but the police who had seen them run away later came to their rescue.
Coke Studio Africa
Though they may have lost out on Hypefest the two are killing it on Coke Studio Africa.
Over the past weekend, Coke Studio Africa was ablaze with the mash-up of the season as Ethic music group of the ‘Lamba Lolo’ hit fame joined Mr. Eazi in the live performance of ‘Keys To The City (Jogede)’. The two acts knew of each other before but never knew that they could have been paired together at the new season of "Coke Studio Africa 2019'.
The surprise pairing and mash-up of ‘Lamba Lolo’ and ‘Keys to the City (Jogede)’ produced by Daddy Andre (Uganda) has been received well by most music fans across Africa. This is Ethic's biggest opportunity yet.
Their unusual rise to fame, straight out of YouTube thanks to their blazing hood hits like ‘Instagram’ has made them popular among Kenyans and beyond. Ethic also met with Nigerian music producer Krizbeatz who produced ‘Pana’ from their Coke Studio Africa stint and they have produced a new track ‘Nitolee’.
