Gabu is one of the few Kenyan artists I have interviewed that are blunt with their truth or what they believe in.
The P-Unit member and owner of Kompact Records is not one to shy away from a loaded question. Recently I called to ask him about his group mate Frasha and some other incidents taking place in the entertainment industry.
He was very candid. I inquired about what he thought of Frasha quitting drinking. He said:
That is Frasha’s personal decision what he is doing. I support him.
When I asked about his own dealings with alcohol, he responded with supreme confidence in his abilities to be able to handle his liquor. He said:
Me, I don’t drink that much.
He succinctly explained:
I am not a drinker.
As the interview progressed I decided to ask what he thought about what he thought about Nyashinski’s new song called, KEBS. His response was surprising.
He said without stuttering:
He can do better.
I asked to go deeper into his answer. He replied:
I love his work but this one didn’t get me that much. He is one of the biggest artists in kenya.
Would he release a song that dealt with his haters? He said that at the moment he was busy running Kompact Records and that he was concentrating on his music.
