Uhuru on play Kenyan Music
Khaligraph’s announcements comes at a time President Uhuru Kenyatta has also expressed his willingness to meet Kenyan musicians at State House to discuss the future of the Music Industry in the country.
“Arrange and bring them to State House if that is what you want so that we can talk and discuss the future of the music industry in the country.And if he doesn’t it’s his fault, not mine, si ni namna hiyo , tumekubaliana,” said President Kenyatta during the burial of Bruce Odhiambo.
However, for better part of this month, artistes led by Khaligraph Jones and NaiBoi have been appealing to Kenyan Radio and TV stations to allocate more airplay to local content.
Musicians argued that the radio industry in Kenya is dominated by Bongo and Nigerian music, as presenters tend to undermine local songs.
