Eric Wainaina has joined fellow artistes to slam brand Kenya for doing very little to market the magnificent Kenya to the outside world.
In a video posted on twitter he wrote
“It’s chilly in

#TingaMusical2018 cast and crew representing on the streets of New York. Also, goofing around. Having cast really well (clearly😂) is what guaranteed the success of this musical. #TingaInNY @ericwainainamusic @eddykimani @tetushanimusic @elsaphan_njora @tedbassicks @totsvi @atemidiva @kendinkonge @karimirimbui @henrywamai @juliuskibugi @nyokabi_macharia @kabaseke @shebahirst @claudialloyd1 @misskadzitu @chrisadwar @alvan.love @sebenmwaniki
