• Tedd Josiah has reminded his social media followers about the post that still rings true to date, "8 years ago I said this and Kenyans paid no attention…"
Legendary music producer turned fashion designer Tedd Josiah has come out to explain why Kenyan music seems to be lagging behind.
Eight years ago, he explained why Kenyan music has no continuity or a touch of history in it.
In a Facebook post, Tedd explained, "NIGERIAN MUSIC WILL RULE!!!! Yes, there I've said it and before you start throwing stones here is why I've said it."
Tedd continued, "Right now Burna boy is doing well. WHY? His father was FELA Kuti's band member in the 70s. He has learnt from the music passed down to him.
He has taken from Nigerian musical heritage and fused it with modern sounds to bring newness. He has 160 million votes in Nigeria alone! Kenya..."
Now, he has reminded his social media followers about the post that still rings true to date, "8 years ago I said this and Kenyans paid no attention…"
Here are some reactions to the post.
Buddha Blaze: This is the Truth and nothing but the Truth.
Haroun Risa: And they never listen. No wonder a good number of Kenyan musicians will live complaining about how Nigerians and South African musicians rule the world in matters of music
Kinyua Mathenge: The prophecy has come to pass...
Hawi James: Spot on Tedd Josiah. I have been trying to lead one of our mentees in this direction but he thinks I am jealous of his talent in music. I think most Kenyan musicians aren't ready for research because it sounds and means hard work.
