The recent cancellation of the Presidential Elections in Kenya has sparked a new wave of tribalism that is dangerously dividing the Nation.
Afrima 2017 Nominee and Kenyan songstress Chess Nthusi has recorded a new song, “Sote ni Wakenya” (we are all Kenyans), hoping to make an impact in this delicate moment of her country’s history.
Since its independence in 1963, Kenya has been living in more or less peace and Chess is indeed calling for peace as she wants people to put aside tribalism for the sake of the country.
With this song, Chess wants Kenyans to turn off ethnic-based politics from their minds. She is calling all Kenyans that have friends from different tribes (and they are many) to be the ambassadors of this message.
It is Chess’ wish that politics should move from ethnicity to an issue-based agenda and all Kenyan people and media companies should try to steer the political debate away from tribalism.
With this song, she hopes that she is giving all a tool to achieve this goal. The song is a gift to the Kenyan people and to all those across the borders who wish to engage with this initiative.
