One third of the Kenyan music rap group P-unit, Boneye is lashing out at netizens claiming he narrated the Diamond story in a clout chasing attempt.
In a series of posts that he shared on his Instagram stories, Boneye opened up on getting several media interview requests especially from Tanzanian media after the story went viral but declining them because he is, "not about riding the wave,"
"Shine the spotlight where the spotlight is deserved. So much young talent out here going to waste because of our mediocrity nature.
If it were for clout i would have taken up the numerous interview requests esp from TZ but hey ... i am not about 'riding the wave'," started off the veteran artist.
He went on to once again give Diamond Platinumz his flowers but also noted that just because someone had worked hard did not automatically qualify them for a collaboration with other artists.
Boneye faulted netizens for nitpicking his whole interview, ignoring him giving Sauti Sol their flowers, all the collaborations they did with Kenyan artists and the conversations around the music industry that he had but only focused on the Tanzanian bit. In his own words, "we are our own enemies,"
"The Tanzanian brother has worked hard and deserves everything he has achieved. It did not have to include a collabo. #Respect
Yes ...so the Tanzanian did not get a collabo but fellow Kenyans did but we are going to ignore that because it does not make it to udaku and Chai.
Funny how a whole conversation about the industry and flowers to a Kenyan musical outfit who have achieved astounding success was ignored and instead the whole conversation made about lips," part of the artist's lengthy post read.
Finishing up the P-Unit band member wrote;
"Same lot that lied to simple man (Stevo Simpleboy) that he had a chance in a music career for the clout and humour and shone a light on his downfall and frustrations for the same reasons.
We are our own enemies, we have been for a while and that is exactly what is ailing the industry,"
