Kenyan singer Victoria Kimani has reacted to Beyonce’s new album ‘The Lion King: The Gift’.
Yesterday, the official tracklist of Beyonce’s new album was revealed and Nigerian artistes like Yemi Alade, Tiwa Savage, Wizkid, Tekno, Burna Boy and Ghanaian Shatta Wale were among those featured.
Kimani was quick to make an observation that there was no artiste from Kenyan or East Africa featured on the album. She argued that ‘The Lion King’ storyline has a Kenyan origin with names like ‘Rafiki’, ‘Simba’ and ‘Nala’ are from Kenya.
Victoria Kimani thought Barrack Obama, or Lupita should have been brought into the narrative at least because of their Kenyan heritage.
