Comedian Eric Omondi is confident that parliament will On Tuesday table a bill he introduced that seeks to play 75 percent of Kenyan songs on their TV and radio stations.
The comedian, who has been actively pushing for local musicians to increase their output and dominate the music industry in the country, said that his proposed bill will be tabled in the August House after a meeting with Embakasi East MP Babu Owino.
“Today at Parliament buildings with Hon. Babu Owino working on the last touches for next week Tuesday. Next week Tuesday we will be tabling the Bill in Parliament officially. It’s a Journey but we will get there. The MPs will pass the Bill and the President will sign it into Law. @he.babuowino,” Eric wrote.
For close to two years the comedian has been advocating for the increase of local music play on radio stations that have put foreign music on heavy rotation.
He has also challenged local artists to step up their game in order to compete with other musicians who have managed to penetrate different markets.
