Attention Kenyan musicians, if you are spending time in the studio making mediocre music, then rapper Rabbit — also known as King Kaka — has a message for you: Stop making bad music.

Rabbit took to his Instagram page to admonish artistes who make second rate music while the rest work hard.

Busy working

He said: “This is what I keep saying, let it not be that you are all talk and there’s nothing you’re doing in the studio... Kenyans are busy working in construction, others are chasing down cars in traffic selling bananas but you are busy making bad songs...

He continued: “Yet other Kenyans are selling maize and beans, are shoe shine assistants, getting paid peanuts, and you’re still making bad songs...”

He, however, acknowledged “every Kenyan artiste doing amazing work”, producers and fans who buy tickets and albums, and even those who watch musicians’ videos on You Tube.
