Okay first of all guys am one of those scared people when it comes to writing stuff- you need facts and real facts well part from gossip blogs where you right what feels juicy to attract traffic, if you have a meaningful blog you must be goof at facts and language.
Now we may have passed the facts test with an amazing 97% on a 0 to 100 guage, you can read through most of my post to confirm so but one unlucky blogger fell on the sharp end of the sword for luck of facts.
Liatemu Munyu a writer a one of Kenya’s famous blog site Ghafla faced the wrath of the award winning Kenyan Boyband Sauti Sol’s Bien Aime after she wrote an article claiming Polycarp Otieno another quarter of the four man band as one the disposable band members in the country.
Below is an except from Munyu’s article and it read.
“They are arguably Kenya’s greatest ever musical act reaching heights few individuals or music groups can ever come close to match. They are made up of four members, Bien Aime, the lead singer, the main man and an accomplished song writer, Willis Chimano, a vocalist multiple instrument player and the group’s rock star, Savara Mudigi, the brains behind their label Sauti Sol entertainment, producer , vocalist and percussionist extraordinaire and the Polycarp Otieno, the group’s quiet guy, a good producer and guitarist. When he is not used as an actor you will be hard pressed to find any significant contribution to the groups music he makes. Savara is obviously the bigger influence on the music production while a guitarist can always be found at a moment’s asking. So Polycarp Otieno is just a guy who was at the right place at the right time.”
But least did Munyu know the news would reach Sauti Sol and the result was a complete C4 explosive detonated in an oil refinery plant, Bien Aime took in his hand the responsibility of firing the missile and on his Facebook he wrote.
“You stupid journalist. You should research before you write these articles. Then again I forget blogs like these only hire the bottom of the pyramid of journalists to write. Polycarp is the SautiSol sound. His guitar is our signature. Second Polycarp is the producer of many if not most of the tracks in the SautiSol album LIVE & DIE IN AFRIKA. Tracks like Nerea, Kuliko Jana and unconditionally Bae are Polycarp productions. He has also produced hits for other artists such as Dela’s Swahili cover of hello,Susana Owiyos “Wa miela” Tanzanias Lady JayDee and others. He is the music director of SautiSols live act that is touring 6 cities this month. You are invited to come witness his greatness in Nakuru on Saturday. Hopefully you will find positive things to write about. That said if you ask me YOU are the one in the right place at the right time. I mean how else do you explain someone so shallow on a platform like this that influences the masses.” Bien fired back.
