Sauti Sol’s Bien Aime is known to be one guy who is talented but one who also believes in speaking out on a matter that he feels needs to be addressed.
A number of times, he has voiced his issues on certain matters. And today, he’s decided to speak out yet again and this time the issue is a pressing matter.
Jamaican artistes Etana, Richie Spice and Luciano are visiting the country for the much awaited concert, Dobba Festival that will be going down tomorrow at the K.I.C.C.
Earlier today, the artistes were invited for the launch of Studio Mashinani, a project by the Ministry of ICT that provides modern recording facilities for talented youth to record their music and other creative products.
The Jamaican artistes were the curtain raisers of the Studio, something that didn’t go so well with Bien.
Well, he took to social media to address the issue writing,
“On December 29 2015 I had the honor to meet with His Excellency The President in Statehouse Mombasa. The agenda was Kenya Music Industry and Youth. Myself and my sauti sol brothers shared a proposal called STUDIO MASHINANI with His Excellency. It was an extensive project involving Music studios, community radio, ICT Centers and Libraries with the spirit of community service. We were further instructed to give the proposal to Bruce Odhiambo who was at the time Chair of the Youthfund office. We teamed up with Raphael Obonyo, Cedric Kadenyi tighten the whole proposal with budgets and standard operating systems for the project. The Proposal was sent to the relevant parties. Only to wake up today a year and some months later to see the project being launched countrywide by a JAMAICAN ARTIST!!!!!! NOT EVEN A KENYAN!!!!!I am not in any way implying that The President has a hand in this because he deals with millions of things and this may just be one of those that he delegated. I feel so robbed. I plan to make everything public soon. Just so that the ones who want to can learn from it.”
