Kisii residents have protested online over what they claim ommition of local Talents in the much anticipated Easter Gusii 7s.
I join Artists from Kisii to condemn the manner in which they have bee handled. Kisii 7s was a great opportunity to display talent and market the local artists. Unfortunately, i understand the county – in its selfish momentum has decided to discriminate the local talent. Despite the region having great and talented young men and women, the relevant departments involved have thrown dirty unfortunate vitrols at the simple and straight forward demands by the local artists. One thing they demand is ‘basic respect and recognition’ which it seems they have been denied. I condemn. Posted Eijah Kombo
Kisii County has set a side over Ksh 50M for entertainment during Gusii 7’s rugby tournament at Kisii Stadium but it will not benefit any Gusii artiste, comedian. Kisii government instead of using this event to promote Gusii Culture,Comedy and Music, they have decide to get artists and comedians from Ukambani, Luo, Congo, Tanzania etc. There is no even one artist from Gusii to perform in this event. Kisii county government when asked said Gusii has no meaningful artiste,MC or Comedian to perform in this event. Gusii we have talent lakini but we don’t like promoting our own. We have Ongengo, Miggy, Babu Gee, Sabby Okengo, Nyashinky etc but they have no chance because of corruption. Kisii County will use this event to steal and loot by inflating the budget. We are watching out. We must give our artistes a priority. Posted Samuel Okemwa
Someone is questioning me on matters Gusii 7s. Guess its time I told you something about this low hyped event. ..Kiba and crew are the ones running the show……Whatever they are doing is trying to justify their means of squandering sponsorship money for the said tournament in the name of having big acts on stage….Posted Brain Child White
