After the concrete Nyashinski took to his Twitter page to tell him that he fully appreciated their support on the night.

Fans then proceeded to give Nyashinski his flowers for what some referred to as a performance of a lifetime. Nyashinski definitely received his roses as he re-shared some of the comments from his fans to his page. 

As fans continue to praise their favorite artist, one of his biggest supporters, Eric Omondi; who has been on a mission to awaken Kenya’s music industry, as according to him the industry is in a stupor, was excited to announce that Nyashinski’s performance was historic in a way.

The comedian, turned Kenya music industry advocate, noted on his Instagram page, that for an international act to curtain raise for a Kenyan artist it was something historic. 

He went on to note that Nyashinski’s feat was only the first step in revolutionizing the music industry. Ever since Eric Omondi released his song with Miss P, he has been on a sort of vendetta against both old-school and new-school acts, telling everyone who bothers to pay attention to him that he is fixing the industry.

He noted that only three artists so far, Victoria Kimani, Frasha, and Jose Chameleon, were in support of his vision. He added that the majority of artists in the country have opposed his idea, he further added that the agenda of his mission was threefold, noting that he was aiming at getting the industry to:

1. Play 75 Percent local music.
2. Pay established local artists the same as their International Counterparts
3. Treat local artists fairly and with respect.
Eric has on several occasions, said that he has something big planned for the industry. The comedian hinted at the possibility of proposing a bill to parliament that would ensure local artists get paid what they deserve.  Do you think Eric has an ulterior motive? Or is he really fighting for Kenyan artists?
