Kenyan singer Avril was recently shocked beyond words after a young fan criticized her music harshly.
During an interview with Ebru TV’s Nicki Bigfish on the Jibonge segment, the guy didn’t mince his words when talking about the mother of one. He said:
[Avril] Siku hizi ameisha, atulie KEJANI achunge mtoto wake. (These days Avril is past her prime, she should stay at home and take care of her child.
‘Give us good music and not garbage!’ Kenyans support Jalang’o after bashing artistes
When asked if he had listened to her new song Kitoko, the guy went in.
Yes I’ve listened to it but haijaninice (I don’t like it). Visuals ziko inje (The visuals aren’t great). If I was the one who produced it, I would have done better. tHE AUDIO ISN’t good as well. She still sings as she used to sing way back , we’re in 2019!
The interviewer then asks him to go ahead and advice Avril and he had this to say:
Your time is over. Stay at home and take care of your child. Pave way for upcoming artistes. This is my sincere opinion, I’m not hating. I’m only stating facts.
Avril, who was behind the interviewee all this time listening to him talk bad, seems hurt. The interviewer asks the guy to turn back and he sees Avril. He’s shocked but can’t take back his words.
Avril shared the video and tagged the producers of the songs J Blessing and Saint Kenya. She captioned the video:
ka hi #sikuhate basi ni nini .. na ati kuna youngin mahali anataka kuwa msanii, uko sure uko ready? @saintpkenya huyu msee amesema yeye ni audio producer na #Kitoko iko down .. @jibrilblessing visuals ziko chini, sikuwa na follow instructions on set. Ngai

karuku_thebrand He is definitely not 100% right. However, @theavieway you should use this feedback to meet the needs of your audience. Don’t believe in everything he said, but he probably said something you’ve been thinking about.
