Award winning Kenyan rapper Nyamari Ongegu aka Nyashinski has shared a word of advise to his fellow artists and creatives.

In a social media post, Nyashinski urged his colleagues to always seek help whenever they are in difficult situations.

“As a creative, I insist that it’s okay to seek help. In fact, It’s necessary. We all stumble and fall sometimes, but it’s how we rise and learn from it that matters. There are people out there who want to help, who want to listen, and who want to be there for you. You just have to take that first step and reach out,” the father of two said.
