Eric Omondi launches plan to revive Kenya’s music industry –
Award-winning buffoon Eric Omondi has unveiled his master plan which he says is the key to improving the Kenyan music industry and putting it on a pedestal. The comedian claimed several months ago that the industry was far from reaching international standards; as he made the comparison with Nigerian music and its artists.
The allegations drew several reactions from artists like Khaligraph Jones, Sauti Sol’s Bien, among others, who chastised Eric’s sentiments, saying Kenya’s music is not in bad shape. In fact, that was the genesis of their beef with Bien. And they almost got into a fight over the same thing.
Eric Omondi would later go to parliament to push for a 75% local content bill. The bill has been expressed, but has not yet been passed. That’s probably why Eric decided to take the bull by the horns and do it himself.
Eric shared his detailed plan on social media;
“The DREAM is finally ALIVE 🇰🇪🇰🇪🇰🇪🎵🎼🎶!!! Here is the whole plan to revive the Kenyan music industry!!! We are starting a series of Kenyan CONCERTS dubbed “THE BIG 5!” BIG FIVE DJs in Kenya, then we’ll move on to the Big Five Old Skul Musicians, then the BIG FIVE New Skul Musicians, then the BIG FIVE COMEDIANS and so on.These gigs will tour the country and eventually lead to a final BIG CONCERT in Nairobi!!! We START in ELDORET this JUNE 4th with the BIG FIVE DJS @djtibzkenya”
Does this sound like a plan that will change the industry?
