Musician Brandy Maina has been forced to defend herself after her tweet announcing she won't be hopping onto any music collaborations for the rest of the year with anyone, save for 5 select artists, went viral.
Brandy took to her Instagram stories to clarify why she said what she said highlighting that the people trolling her were clearly not artists and thus couldn't relate to the dynamics of her line of work.
"I can tell the people pressed about my tweet are not artists because they clearly don't get the back end of it, there is time for everything," started Brandy.
She went on to add that as an artist she had to focus on herself and her projects because that is what mattered the most in the long run,
"I have been doing collaborations for a while now and I really have not had or taken time to work on my solo projects.
See if I do a song with you, I will push it to the best of my ability and that takes time, money, and effort that I think I need to best preserve for my E.P for the rest of the year," finished off the "Dark Skin" hitmaker.
Earlier on in the day Brandy had announced that she would not be doing any more collaborations with anyone minus a select few artists for the rest of the year.
Her message read, "Unless it is Nyashinski, Kinoti, Watendawili, Femi One or Fathermoh, I am not doing any more collaborations this year. Leave me out of interviews as well."
Her sentiment somehow seemed to annoy netizens who called her out for being full of herself or feeling like she has made it in the industry yet she was still coming up.
