This comes amidst heated exchanges between the two factions as to why content from Nigeria and Tanzania was ruling the airwaves
Musicians and TV and radio presenters’ beef which was started by Khaligraph Jones has now turned ugly as some people have started taking things too personal. Khaligraph started the beef by mocking presenters with a free trip to Nigeria while protesting the influx of Nigerian music in the Kenyan airwaves. Several musicians have come out to support Khaligraph’s demand for Kenyan content to be given priority when it comes to airplay. Jalang’o has been the face of TV and radio presenters in this tug of war, he has been defending fellow presenters against claims that they favor foreign content over Kenyan music. Deaf and dump to Kenyan talent Victoria Kimani has also come out to support calls for Kenyan music to be given 100% airplay. She says that she has been advocating for the same for the past five years but no one listened to her. She also said that Jalang’o and people who thinking along the same lines as him are ignorant. Victoria further says the Jalangos are deaf and dump to Kenyan talent.
