According to Otile Brown, Coke Studio have never been able to afford his fees.

Their selection, however, did not settle down with a multitude of Kenyans who held there were other deserving artistes who could represent Kenya better than the two who were picked.

Celebrities such as Willy Paul and Scar Mkadinali are just but a few local stars who faulted Coke Studio on their choice of Kenyan representatives.

Their sentiments were echoed by many music lovers who insisted that indeed singers like Otile Brown and Willy Paul would have made the best pick from Kenya.
