Kenya Tourism Board

On Thursday, a section of Kenyan musicians were up in arms with the Kenya Tourism Board (KTB) and Barclay’s bank, who are among the main sponsors of the event on grounds that it was not right for Mafikizolo to headline an event meant to promote the country’s culture.

“Thank you @magicalkenya and @KenyaOpenGolf for giving us Kenyan Artistes another chance to showcase how brilliant we are on stage! I just performed for 3 hours at #antoLIVE and can’t wait to watch my fellow Kenyans @MafikizoloSA sindio @danaceda ?. BOYCOTT THIS SHIT! FUCK ABSA! tired of being taken for a ride by these Kenyan corporates who hates themselves more than they’ll ever KNOW!” wrote Anto Neosoul.

Explanation

The musicians called out the organizers saying they should have picked locals to headline the event.

However, as the explanation from Patrick Githinji of Media Edge Pr, the South African duo are slated to only perform on Saturday.

The 2019, Kenya Open Golf Championship will bring together some of the world’s top golfers battling for Sh124 million as the top reward.
