Fena Gitu is pissed! She is upset at how local artists were treated at the Omarion concert. You see, the truth is, Kenyans do not put premium on local acts nor local talent. That is why we are more than happy to pay an arm and a leg to see foreign acts but
bitch when we are asked to remove more than 1000/- for local acts.
She recently opened up about the humiliation local acts were subjected to by the security team and organizers at the Omarion concert. According to her, she was personally affronted when the security team refused to allow her backstage to gather her things and leave. She had decided to leave when she saw the atmosphere change because Omarion had arrived. I guess she wanted to stave off any humiliation by simply going for her stuff and bouncing.
Instead, this is what transpired:
“Event organisers should accord local artistes respect. During the Omarion concert that was held recently, I had to let my frustrations known. There was a lot of commotion backstage when he was ushered in, everything changed. Artistes on the lineup were not allowed to go back to their tent to get their stuff including me. I was frustrated because I was at my own concert which I had performed and I should have been allowed to go back to my tent. This was not the first time it happened and I’m pretty sure it will not be the last one. I hope in the Wizkid concert there will be order. For me there is a certain courtesy you extend to an artiste who is performing at that kind of platform.”
