You HONESTLY want to tell me that a @khaligraph_jones@otilebrown@realshinski CONCERT cannot pull Crowds on the LAST DAY of the YEAR. I have no PROBLEM with Konshens. My Issue is our own MESSAGING!!! We are and have been K*****G OUR OWN!!! It’s all in the MESSAGING PEOPLE, MESSAGING is everything. SO next week KENYAN ARTISTS will be UNVEILED as CURTAIN RAISERS."
