Kenyan producer Tedd Josiah is lashing out at what he terms as hypocritical Kenyans, Kenyan media and Kenyan celebrities mourning Bruce Odhiambo.
Bruce, who was former Youth Enterprise Development Fund Chairman, was also a producer who had worked with many celebs in Kenya.
“Just last week I wrote “they will write RIP and pretend to celebrate me when am dead”
Kenyan celebrities, Kenyan radio, Kenyan media and Kenyans….
Here is a photograph of Kenyans with both a gold and platinum plaque from sales of their album internationally.
Am sure non of you can name even one person here….
But today you’re going to write R I P to the young keyboardist who shaped the sound of that bad “SAFARI SOUND” and his name was Bruce Odhiambo.
I celebrate you and always have,Rest in the Kings Kingdom. The good you did will never go forgotten.
My life changed the day i walked into your studio. I dared to dream…..
R I P to a KING
To the rest of my broken lost radio tv and media… research your Kings and Queens write about them, play their music because the world celebrated them before you trashed them.”
In a previous post, Josiah had hit hard at people who are quick to wish you a safe journey to eternity yet they can never support you when alive.
“Get up go get it! Maybe u will win maybe u will loose but the journey will be a beautiful one! My very 1st cd 💿 to produce was in 1995 with very little knowledge just a dream and a strong belief that my purpose was God driven and nothing was going to stop me. No one even bought cds let alone knew of them! I was breaking ground.
Nearly 28 years in the music industry i can say the game shifted, peoples lives were uplifted, pride in who we are became normal and we made people sing “Kenyan boy” “kisumu 100” “atoti” “Unbwogable” “saa zingine” “uhiki” and so much more…….
Then tv came calling and i made my small mark with VIPI mongolo and Didge….. Then i just needed to learn more and dropped everything and left.
In a way those were great times, maybe someday when am dead you will see them come out of the wood works with their “RIP’s” and all.
But for you reading this. Know this.You will stumble you will fall but you will win you will rise! And ride that dream like your life depends on it!My #TBT #PapaBearSays”
