Nadia Mukami’s public outcry after being mistreated at Jamboree Concert
The concert went down at Uhuru Park over the Valentines weekend
In post seen by Pulse Live, the Maombi hit-maker pointed out that she was mistreated alongside her team and by the time she was getting on stage her energy levels had already dropped out of frustrations.
The singer also pointed out that her team was denied backstage access, despite having well-labeled tags indicating who they were.
Mistreated at Jamboree concert
“Forgive me in advance🙏🏻 #ValentineJamboreeConcert. I wanna say thank you for making me part of this that means you see the work we put it but allow me to point out some challenges we experienced tonight before I set my feet on stage. This is just a sober and mature realization, I mean we all disagree to agree! First of all when we got to the venue with my whole team, the bookings manager as usual went to check in with the security team I was left in the car with my dancers, official DJ, Videographer and the Content Manager. We then realized there was a commotion and I told the Content manager to go check. Later, the content manager asked for my security to be taken to my tent at the backstage and one of the guys was really rude and very hesitant. After a couple struggles one of few good security guys who is a fan agreed to take me to a tent only to be told when we got there; ‘ Hii tent ni ya msanii X( allow me to reserve the name) na ile next ni ya International artists You and your Content Manager kaeni hapa tutawapeleka kwa Tent ya ‘LOCAL ARTISTS’( Kenyan artists) hapo kwa VVIP. That really hit me and the Content Manager told the security guy: Hatuendi mahali then he instructed me nisisonge! All this time my team the dancers, DJ and my videographer were being denied access despite having the tags to backstage (I mean we always provide a rider)” shared Nadia Mukami.
Respect Local artistes
Ms Mukami disclosed that they were also kicked out of the tent they had used to change before hitting the stage on ground that it had been reserved for International artistes.
“By the time my dancers joined me at ‘ international artists tent’ they were already mad and stressed and we were being pressured to move to the ‘local artist tent. We later got on stage( personally my energy levels were already low plus my team was just bored and feeling like we are just nobodies in our own country! We got on stage and killed it🔥🔥🔥as usual😁Coming back from stage our sweaters and jumpers had already been moved to the ‘local artists tent’😁 and our drinks I mean we need water after performance were no where to be seen! CONCLUSION:I am not against any ‘international artist’ having high end care but please let the treatment be fair also to us ‘Local artists’ We work very hard to represent our fans and our country and I would request we get a little bit of respect. Just a humble feedback and suggestion!” said Nadia.
