While Chaguo La Moyo took seven years to get there, Dusuma, which features Rwandan singer Meddy, did it in less than a year.
Otile’s post comes at a time when Kenyan artists are under pressure to match Tanzanians’ exemplary performance as they continue dominating both Kenyan airwaves and Youtube streams.
Several artists have asked fans to avoid comparing them to Tanzanians however because the two industries are at a different place.
“I see how people are making fun of their own. So sad ????, but this is Kenya, so you have to get used to this behaviour,” said Willy Paul.
“Run at your own pace, don’t do something because someone else has done it. You will break. As an artist do not ever feel pressured by such things. Yes, work hard but don’t torture yourself with other things”.
