“I'm showing my successes because that's something that the guys who were here before us didn't show. I'm building home show other musicians that it's good to invest because things can change with this industry, but if you have a place to call home Where you don't pay rent, it's safe for the family,” he explained.
“I'm building it at my own pace because I don't have all that money, but mimi sijengi nyumba za ufala, najenga nyumba noma. It is massive with many bedrooms. Najisukuma, I strive to have one of the best to just show people that this thing is possible because 10 years ago I had nowhere to call home. Mimi nilikuwa naishi Dandora is with someone on nilikuwa nalala kwa kiti. So my mansion is to show people that nothing is impossible.
Haligraph Jones tells Eric Omondi that he attacked musicians
Hitmaker Omollo responded to Eric Omondi, who fought for the Kenyan music to be given more airwaves locally, saying he partially agrees with the comedian.
“Eric is a person who expresses his opinion, and not all opinions are facts. We do not agree with some things, although I can say that there is a part where I agree with him, playing 75% Kenyan music. Plus, he's just an ordinary guy… I understood one thing, if you want to get attention in this country, just say Kenyan music it's rubbish and everybody's going to pay attention to you, so I think that's what Eric does because he realized it's the only thing that can get his attention,” he said.
“I'm for what he insists on is just that I don't agree with the methods he uses. I don't think it's right to attack people, help them instead, and show them ways.”
He noted that Kenyan artists have made great progress in music.
“We have to give the fans time, good content, and I'm very optimistic and I believe over time we're going to get what we want,” he said.
Program Rapper praised Kenyans for participating in the event and encouraged them to continue to support local talent.
