One can only imagine what was going through his mind at the time.
The teenage sensation was the ultimate lockdown sensation who burst into the limelight and is still making waves.
With his impeccable flow, the soft-spoken lad brings back the ‘E-Sir vibe,’ a notion that has been a point of contention on social media as some believe there is nothing to compare the two.
Nod from Nameless
In May, legendary Kenyan singer David Mathenge aka Nameless jotted down a special message to the Gengetone artist as he weighed in on the E-sir comparison.
In a tweet, Nameless lauded the younger musician for the good job he is doing in the music Industry, stating by the virtue of him being compared to the late E-sir, it means that he is doing something impactful.
“Keep up the good work @TriomioOfficial whenever you see yourself being compared to greats like E-Sir then you are definitely impactful. Bless up” shared Nameless.
Upon seeing the message, Trio Mio, appreciated Nameless for encouraging him to keep pushing; saying it’s an honour to be in the same conversation with him.
“Thank you so much @namelesskenya this means the world to me. It’s a great honor to even be in the same convo as The Legend Goat Inanipea strength ya kuzidi kuskuma. Bless Up” reads Trio Mio’s reply.
