Sondeka hitmaker Naiboi is very angry at Kenyan politicians for double standards when it comes to adhering to COVID-19 restrictions that prohibit social gatherings.
The talented artist whose real name is Michael Kennedy Claver,has taken to social media and called on his fellow creatives to join forces and get back to their hustle.
In a social media rant shared on Instagram, the father of one said he is more than ready to perform in big crowds and concerts and any willing artiste should reach out to him to do the same.
Naiboi’s suggestion has come after a some Kenyan politicians were seen holding crowded rallies despite the strict social distancing directives given to curb the spread of the virus.
“Yoo, it’s show time. To all the guys whose jobs depend on a crowd I believe it’s go time. Ma promoter nipigieni simu niterperform kwa kiwanja. The truth about Corona is right here in this picture.” He wrote
Hinting disappointment at Kenya’s leadership, he requested event organisers and promoters to host gigs and concerts for creatives.
“The potential that this country Has inaniumanga sana when our leaders…….Watu wa events mnangoja ni @chriskirwa
Blessed week Kenyans” he added
Similarly, rapper Khaligraph Jones penned a letter to President Uhuru Kenyatta requesting for the closure of bars and social gatherings to be eased upon so musicians can perform live and make money.
