Nairobi County Governor Johnson Sakaja is in a hard place following a whistle blown by one of Kenya’s leading Artist Arrowbwoy.
Arrowbwoy took his out his outcry over the payment of artists who performed during the Nairobi festival in December 2022.
The artist revealed that his efforts to get paid through the company that hired him have been futile and he is now demanding for an intervention from the Nairobi County Governor Johnson Sakaja.
“Dear our Governor Sakaja Johnson, mambo imechemka huku nje (things have reached a boiling point out here). Since we performed at the Nairobi Festival in December, we have not been paid. Personally, I was contracted by Homeboyz Agency. My team has tried a couple of times reaching out to Homeboyz about the payment, the response is that they have not also been paid by the county…” said Arrowbwoy.
The Fashionita artist also received backing from Saint Kevinsky who aslo decried of the late payment noting that all artistes signed contracts however they havent received any payments since performing in December.
