Popular Kikuyu musician Ben Githae has hit out at a section of Kenyans online, blaming him for the failures of President Uhuru Kenyatta’s Jubilee regime. Mr. Githae told those who listened to his song ‘Tano Tena’ and voted for Jubilee to do something with their lives, instead of pointing fingers at him.
”People today point at me and say I am responsible for the failures of this government. But that does not bother me. At that time I do not believe in that,” Ben Githae told NTV on Sunday.
The popular musician became a trending topic online for a better part of Sunday, with thousands of Jubilee Party supporters tearing him apart, for their poor 2017 choices.
”I just sang a song. It was upon them to take the message or not listen to me. If you don’t work for yourself and put the blame on Ben Githae, you will die very poor. I was doing my job and I was paid. Do your job too and be paid. Work for yourself and stop blaming other people,” he added.
In his 2017 hit song ‘Tano Tena’, the gospel crooner heaps praise on President Uhuru Kenyatta and William Ruto and calls on Kenyans to come out in their numbers to vote the duo back to office, for another five years (tano tena).
