• Makku disclosed Kelechi Africana had begged for an interview on her show but failed to show up
• The Pwani FM radio presenter noted that Kelechi Africana was so rude that he did not send in an apology
Kenyan artistes can make you go bonkers, and this, Pwani FM radio presenter Makku has learnt the hard way.
The mid morning show host is not a happy soul after being messed up by popular Kenyan musician Kelechi Africana.
Makku, on Friday, July 21, came out to blast Kelechi Africana for missing on a scheduled interview on her show without prior apology.
In a long Facebook post seen by YEIYO.com, Makku wondered why Kelechi was a no show for the interview yet he is the one who reached out and begged for a slot.
According to Makku, everything was all systems go and the station had even run a promo for the interview only for the Naangalia Kiuno hitmaker to bail on them last minute.
Makku expressed her disappointment noting that Kelechi Africana’s move put her job and those of others at risk.
The beautiful Makku revealed that this was the third time Kelechi Africana stood them up for interviews even despite being the one always begging for them.
She held that such moves always make radio presenters to give artistes of Kelechi’s Ilk total blackout.
Makku wrapped up by advising young musicians to always maintain discipline if they need to grow their brands in media.
“Soo many questions in my inbox about this artist why hajatokea kwa show as we promoted toka jana. So since siezi jibu mtu mmoja mmoja Acha niache hii hapa. This artist sitaki kumtaja jina nisimpe kiki, aliomba interview mwenyewe oya Sisi tukakubali sawa we booked him. Alivyo haieshimu brand yake wala jina lake , hawezi heshimu pia muda wa watu wengine and he doesn’t know courtesy ya kuomba apology kama mtu hataweza inaeleweka unasema oyaa mwenzenu nimeshindwa lakini mkaka huyu didn’t show up and didn’t even send in an apology kwamba sitaweza. Kwa sababu we always have plans soo Sisi we moved na kazi kama Kawa. This is the THIRD time this artist anafanya kitu kama hiyo, Kesho ukimzimia data mtu kama huyu atarudi mitandaoni aseme oooh mtu flani oooh radio flani bla bla bla. Msanii ni discipline and this one hana hata. So nimewajibu cause maswali mengi na kama ni mashabiki zake musiniulize habari zake page zake mnazijua nendeni huko. But all I can say is kuimba tu sauti bila heshima wala nidhamu na jina lako utaendelea kutafuna maneno kwa nyimbo mwisho wa Siku huna moja. PS: Kisha mijitu itakuwa inasema oooh mnashobekea wanigeria sijui wabongo wasanii wetu kibao nyef nyef. Msanii ni kama huyu yani mara 3 you ask for a slot we book you, you don’t show up unadhani hizi station ni za baba zetu tunafanya tunavyotaka au? No bro station za wenyewe and if you are booked and you don’t show up; no apology wala no communication yeyote unaharibu ratiba mjomba. Kesho ukimtajia director jina la huyo msanii anakataa hata kusikia. Then uta blame presenter flani ohh radio flani Kumbe viburi mnavianza wenyewe. #INAFUTWA,” Makku wrote.
Her sentiments were echoed by countless social media users who insisted that indeed Kelechi Africana messed up big time and needs to apologise to Makku and Pwani FM for disrupting their schedule.
Others, however, rallied behind Kelechi Africana holding that some times celebrities need to pull such moves for clout, lol.
