Gospel singer Guardian Angel has challenged Kenyan musicians to release enough content so that theyy can get the 75% airplay in our local media outlets.
Speaking to NTV, the veteran gospel musician praised comedian Eric Omondi who is pushing for a petition to have the bill passed.
He said he felt challenged to release more songs so that when he tells a DJ to play his music, they will have enough content on their list.
“What Eric did is historical, he is a comedian and he was fighting for musicians. He was pulled from a truck fighting for us. I don’t care on what he is gaining from it and whether he is clout chasing, but he has a point,” he said.
Guardian further added;
“What he is doing is a challenge for us. My challenge this year was to build 100 songs so that when I tell a DJ to play my songs, he has enough songs to play for a whole day without repeating.
What if i ask him to play 75% of my songs and I don’t have, what will he play? I have to release enough content and tell him, now here is my music, play 75%.
At some point we have not given them enough.”
On Tuesday, the comedian presented his bill championing for 75% of local music to be played on TV and Radio stations to members of parliament where he tasked Embakasi East Member of Parliament Babu Owino and his Starehe counterpart Charles Njagua aka Jaguar to table the bill in parliament.
