Veteran Kenyan hip hop artiste, Jua Cali has urged Kenyans to be patient with the upcoming gengetone artistes who he believes will eventually ´mature´ in their content.
Gengetone music which shook the Kenyan music industry in 2019, has been slammed for vulgar content, which is considered a bad influence for the youth.
However, King of Genge Music, Jua Cali stated that Gengetone is Kenya´s own original and it should be embraced rather than condemned.
Up and close on Milele FM, during Bangaiza reloaded, the Genge influence revealed that he is actually working with the rising stars as they continue his legacy.
Lazima watu waunderstand kitu moja. Mimi kama msanii especially nlianzisha hii genge music, imagine kama mimi ningeturn around nianze kukashifu hawa vijana ingekuwa ni wrong sana. For me, ilikuwa humbling sana wao kuita mziki wao gengetone ni kama walikua wanatry kuambia watu mahali influence imetoka.
According to him, the vulgar content is part of growth. Which he believes will ´mature´ and change in due time, but with patience.
Usiexpect msanii mdogo aanze kuimba kuhusu NHIF ama sukari imepanda. Bado wako home. Hii kitu lazima imove natural, polepole tu. The more wataendelea kugrow, the more content itachange. Kina sailors wameanza so with time, itachange.
Further admitting that it is quite a pleasure for him to see Genge music evolve.
Niko blessed, niko happy kua bado hapa, kuona tumeinfluence a whole generation.
Pointing out that he would not mind if his children listened to such kind of music.
