Genge rapper Mejja has come out to address claims that he is not as big in the Kansoul as he was when was riding solo.
According to some critics, the rapper’s star has dimmed and his lyrics are below par since he teamed up with Madtraxx and Kid Kora to form the Kansoul. Some of his fans have been crying for a solo project reminiscent of his humorous storytelling in his songs earlier in his career.
“Watu kwa mtandao wanauliza Mejja arudi apige moja tu yake bila Kansoul. Sijui kama umeona. Wanasema umepotea sana kwa Kansoul, hakuna mashairi,” Jalang’o asked Mejja in an interview.
He responded saying he is still a lyricist but had to adapt to the new generation to ensure longevity.
“Lazima tuchange kama venye generation inachange wale watu nilikuwa naimbia 2007 saa hii wako na familia so atabambika na ngoma zako lakini kama kuna concert hatakuja .Hii generation mpya ukitaka kuwa relevant lazima uchange na vile generation inachange. That’s why tumekuwa tukiwork na hawa wasee mnaskia saa hii kama akina Ethic, Ochunglo family, Boondocks na City Boy,” Mejja explained.
But Jalang’o probed further, saying, “Unaisha ama unatumia vijana kukuinua?”
Mejja said, “Hapana. Unajua nilirealize wave inachange na kwa sababu watu wengine wako sensitive na lyrics but ukiimba nao unawawekea stamp of authority hawa wasee wako sawa.”
