One third of Kleptomanix, Nyashinksi or Nyash as he is popularly known, recently made a major comeback after a decade out of the limelight, releasing back-to-back hits including; ‘Mungu Pekee’, ‘Now You Know’ and more recently, ‘Malaika’ and ‘Aminia’. And players in the industry from far and wide have taken note.
Nyash was recently nominated for the coveted MTV EMA (European Music Awards) in the Best Africa Act category which was ironically met with a lot of criticsm in Kenya. Reason being the talented artiste is allegedly snobbish as was affirmed by some of his colleagues in the local entertainment scene.
Well, his MTV nod has taken a political twist after President-Elect Uhuru Kenyatta said he had voted for him and urged his fellow countrymen to do the same.
Without much to do, read below what the naysayers said on Twitter:
munene kariuki (@_munene_kariuki): Why cant we use the IEBC to count the votes and Nyashinski will have a smooth way to victory..he will even defeat the number of voters.
ALLAN (@AllanBett8): So what Royal media service stations can report to us this morning is; President Kenyatta has voted for Nyashinski.Githeri media indeed.
Mitch Kitoi (@KitoiO): Ujinga ni President Kenyatta asking Kenyans to vote for Nyashinski when we all know he is good in rigging.
Alijamal (@allyjei): There is no need for President Kenyatta to vote for Nyashinski to win. Just look for the servers and rig for him.
THE MOMBASA PUNDIT (@FashionRebelMU): Now that President Kenyatta has asked for kenyans to vote for Nyashinski,I will not vote for him.his Jubilee people can vote for him.
Alijamal (@allyjei): We are tired with Githeri media. Kenyatta voting for Nyashinski is nonsense. We invite international broadcasting to our country.
Some decided to have some fun:
