This past weekend was not short of high octane drama when one of the country's leading television stations made a grave error.
At last the Dance-hall Ambassador is back in the 254. Listeners of Homeboyz Radio 91.1 FM had been wondering what had happened to their 'favourite' radio show host.
2008 MTV Africa Music Award winner Wahu is back in the limelight with a BRAND NEW VIDEO for the Valentine season but with a twist.
Much as there are speculations that the local music industry is experiencing overwhelming influence from the western culture, the local artistes are proving this to be wrong each day.
Kenyan music is one of the most diverse in Africa. It is growing in a fast rate with many upcoming artists. However, there seems to be a malignant cancer that is threatening to kill it-piracy. Musicians are unable to earn out of their labor. We have unscrupulous business people who have dedicated their time to bring the industry to its knees. People no longer buy original CDS, instead they just copy music from their friends.
I think Kenyan music industry has grown over the past few years and is now taking over. The previous years in the early 1999 I can say people did not value Kenyan Music that much but come the past few years it has grown and many upcoming artist have become celebrities.
The first few years have seen the Kenyan music industry move a notch high. The music industry is one industry that is on the run with the aim of meeting international standards. There are new artists who are coming up daily with different tunes and rhythms. This is the right path which this industry is taking. Unlike in the past when this music was centered on specific themes, we are seeing artists who are coming up to champion different ideas. We have seen music that s ranging from patriotic to gospel. This is the right path to toe if at all we are to meet the international standards. The idea of variety should be encouraged.
Time is ripe for Kenyan musicians to review their music style if they are to shine in the global market.
They say music is the mind and soul of a society; the breath by which character and semblance emanate from any being and the lifeline that keeps the culture of a society vibrant and progressive. It happens to be this very same soul that evokes the pulses and emotions that affect the very same creators as well as listeners.
