According to the ‘UKO‘ hitmaker, King Kaka is not her boss and the fact some artists believe they have contributed more to the Kenyan music industry than other is pure nonsense and shouldn’t be entertained on any level.
“I’m an independent artiste, we are just artistes who came together and said we should do something together, we are just managed by one manager. I really don’t wanna get into a fight between Kaka and Sauti Sol. I understand both artistes and the struggles they go through.”
“I respect both artistes and what they have done for the industry. For them to throw words at each other and for people to feel that they have contributed too much to the industry and others to feel like they have contributed even more than others is just nonsense.”
Avril was in an interview with Mpasho.
A couple of weeks ago, King Kaka bashed Sauti Sol after they allegedly removed his poster from the group’s social media platforms. He also accused them of not doing much to help the local music industry.
In his accusation, King Kaka questioned the boys band over their help in the industry. In a rejoinder, Sauti Sol invited King Kaka to pay them a visit at their offices so that they can share notes with him on how to make it in the music industry. According to the Kenya’s most popular band, King Kaka is struggling to assist other artists who are better than him.
During an interview, Sauti Sol’s lead vocalist Bien Baraza hit at King Kaka saying that as Sauti Sol they help others for love not doing something for the industry.
Savara, a member of Sauti Sol also pointed a finger at King Kaka claiming that Kaka was just out to ride on Sauti Sol’s fame.
“I think Kaka wants relevance with Sauti Sol. I feel like I’m giving him relevance by talking about him. I think I have worked too hard and now that I’m talking about him I’m giving him five years of my career” said Savara.
