Sauti Sol’s Bien took to social media to show his support to musicians demanding Kenyan music to be given priority when it comes to airplay on radio and TV in the country.
“Kenyan music always comes with the word support. When you play Beyonce are you supporting her? I don’t know. Don’t support Kenyan music. Consume it, live it. It’s great,” Bien posted.
