The Late E-Sir’s legendary status in the Kenyan entertainment scene is cemented.
Conversations on how to honor the Kenyan hip-hop star among Artists, fans and politicians are always ongoing, and sometimes feathers are raffled.
Recently, newly elected Kileleshwa MCA Robert Alai was not impressed by Nameless suggestion to name a street after E-Sir to honor his memory.
Nameless Petitions For a road to be named after E-Sir
This comes after Nameless petitioned for a road in South C, Esir’s Estate, to be named after him, in honor of his memory.
“In honor of this iconic Kenyan artist who was not only a great talent and friend to many, but a pioneer in his genre of music, we are calling on the Nairobi County Council (NCC) and The Office of the Ombudsman to name a road, drive or street in South C in ‘E-Sir’s” name as a way of celebrating artistic talent and in honor of his memory.” Said nameless.
“Think of Fundraising for a social club to help upcoming musicians” Robert Alai on Honoring E-Sir
Responding to the petition, Robert Alai rubbished the idea.
“Of all the things you could do for Esir, naming a road is what you could think of?
You can’t think of fundraising for a social hub which can be digitally enabled and help young musicians or upcoming ones to better their creative skills and properly compose, brand and market?”
Alai said the idea showed why there was stagnancy in the growth in the music industry.
