Kenyans blast Victoria Kimani over Sauti Sol

Victoria Kimani is in trouble.

KOT blasted her to smithereens for what they thought was shade at Sauti Sol who have been killing it with collaborations with Nigerian artistes like Patoranking and Burna Boy.

Victoria Kimani tweeted out that she had broken the mould consistently in the Kenyan music scene but wasn’t appreciated but when a Kenyan boy band does it they are praised as innovative.

A tweet that Kenyans interpreted as shots at Sauti Sol  since Victoria Kimani did collaborations with Nigerians first but she was labelled 'unpatriotic'  but when Sauti sol did it was considered ground-breaking.

“Victoria Kimani does something first ..... “She isn’t patriotic she this she that .....” Boy band does same exact thing “Oh my gawd they are so innovative” Read the tweet.

Which elicited some harsh reactions:

Following the outrage, Victoria was forced to block a few people before defending herself. She disclosed that her tweet wasn’t shade at the said boy band but she was just defending her right to work with whom she pleases.

Fena Gitu also came to her defence by reminding Kenyans that Victoria Kimani is one of the best female artistes in Kenya. And that it frustrated her that Victoria constantly gets sh*t from Kenyans despite her ‘talent and the hard work she puts in.’

She went on to compare Kenya’s lack of appreciation for Victoria to how they treated Lupita. “This is that Lupita shit all over again.” She commented
