Kenyan singer Mejja has revealed that he recently said no to an artist from Diamond’s Wasafi Records.
Speaking in an interview with Youtuber The Kenyan Entrepreneur, Mejja said he was recently approached by an artiste from WCB but he turned down the deal.
He revealed that after turning down the deal, he was called by Willy M Tuva who wanted to know why he turned down the deal.
The singer said he felt like the artiste was being rude to him rather than being humble.
“Hata Juzi nilipigiwa simu na Tuva. Mimi nilipigiwa simu na Willy Tuva kwasababu nilikataa kufanya ngoma na Wasafi. Ako like “Eh naskia joh Wasafi walikupigia simu ukakataa kufanya ngoma nao. Mimi narespect sana wasanii, napenda kufanya vitu vi authentic lakini Yule mtu aliniapproach kwa Instagram, alinifanya nifeel nikama ananifanyia favour Na saa hizo ni text sa naimagine huyu msee angeongea live, ningempiga ngumi ” He said
He added that he is on a mission to take genge to the world just the same way people listen to Lingala without understanding a word.
“Mimi staki nikue labeled atu nilifanya ngoma na Wasafi..Nataka ikue njia ingine. Nataka kuonyesha wakenya that unaeza enda hii njia ingine na inawork. Wakenya pia wanafaa kuangalia venye mtu ana approach vitu…Agenda yangu ni kushika Africa.” He added
Mejja further added that he is however in talks with other Tanzanian, Zambian and Nigerian artistes and soon the projects will drop.
