Comeback king Nyashinski of the Klepto fame is having quite a bitter-sweet week after he was nominated for the prestigious MTV EMA awards.
After news hit the net, that the ‘Aminia’ emcee had received a nod from MTV Europe Music awards, a number of fans lauded him, they urging Kenyans to vote for him as “he is one of our own,” or so they thought.
But days later, Nyash’s nomination has been met with resistance from some haters, some of whom are celebrities too in their different rights. They dissed Nyashinski for being too snobbish.
They wondered why the multi-talented artiste who is battling it out with Nigeria’s Wizkid and Davido, as well as South Africa’s Babes Wodumo and Nasty C, should be supported yet he does not support other artistes.
“Si kwa ubaya. Hata kufollow wasanii wenzako (No bad feeling, but the guy does not even follow his fellow artistes)…,” a post which received likes by the likes of Fundi Frank and other industry players, read.
The music awards that has nominated Nyash recognises the best artistes mostly from Europe and goes down on November 12 at the SSE Arena, Wembley in London.
In the lead is superstar singer Taylor Swift who has six nods including the coveted Best Video for her latest hit, ‘Look What You Made Me Do’. Others are Shawn Mendes, Ed Sheeran and Kendrick Lamar with five nominations for the former and four to the rest.
Also causing excitement are newcomers KYLE and Dua Lipa who have been recognised in different categories.
