The BBI coast edition went down at Mama Ngina Drive in Mombasa. The colorful event couldn’t be complete without politicians showcasing their dancing skills.
Love You Die by Diamond and Patoranking, Nobody can stop reggae by Lucky Dube and Diamond Platnumz’ hit Baba Lao – which many term as East Africa’s anthem – were some of the songs which sent crowds into ‘celebration’ mode.
Well, Radio Jambo’s breakfast host Joseph Ogidi aka Gidi Gidi took to social media to lash out at politicians for playing Tanzanian music instead of Kenyan songs at the event.
BBI is about Kenya…inclusivity etc….Why are you playing TZ music at the rallies? Kulundeng #PlayKE #WajinGaNyinyi,’ he posted.
Gidi’s post ignited mixed reactions with some supporting the BBI event organisers for choosing Tanzanian music over Kenyan, saying Bongo music was way better than local.
Fundi Frank I’ve noticed the same Bro Gidi Ogidi it happens many times at our national events. Sad.
Meg Melvine First thought it was a Tanzanian concert
