Beyoncé has been criticized for not including any Kenyan artists from her Lion King album, which she describes as being a ‘love letter to Africa.’

East African musician, John Katana, who claims to have first popularized the phrase Hakuna Matata, has spoken out about the snub.


He told TMZ that he had noticed Beyoncé didn’t include any local artists on her album, The Gift.

The site reports that Disney included other African artists, such as Nigerian pop star WizKid, Ghanaian producer Shatta Wale and Nigerian singer Burna Boy.
