“Kenya music is going through a very interesting time, a time of growth and a time of prosperity, this is the time to give the artists what they deserve!
“From the time I started working with @officialmasauti_ I learnt that there are many artists out there who are talented but just lack support, they need a bigger voice to showcase what they have! This is the opportunity! The opportunity is @heavyjmusic the new and the latest music label in town!” he wrote.
In conclusion, Jalang’o called upon his social media fans to help him identify Kenyan talent that needed to be natured.
“Please tag me some talented artists that we should consider in this journey! God above everything.”
