“SHAME on #TraceMziki

You are exploiting hearsay than living as example by Unifying Africa Musically!!!

Professionalism is than this-

I have existed 16 years not by Favour or anything close. It's Fans and the almighty who have given me an audience that you must achieve. The person doing your PR right here is not adding value to the Trace Brand we music makers have hoped to redeem us from segregation and all sorts. We anticipated your arrival but if this is the way then I am going back to school to learn and come seek a job!!!!! You can't go so far without the Key Players who have grown this industry from Nothing!!!

If we didn't gather East Africa together Musically you would never find a ready market for your viewership.

We Must partner to add and build Value to redeem our African music coz it defines who we are.

I am built on pillars made by the people who believe in My music therapy.

Such approach will paralyze your channel and East Africa Music entirely.

I love music East Africa with a passion from the time it had no shoes and you could never depend on it. Now it's in sneakers and you arrive

Regardless I will not bow to blackmail!!!!

Good music has no limits. My impact is felt by even the blind that don't watch TV. And am on my highway to people's hearts not eyes.

You love My music, please share this post
