Dj Kalonje Criticizes Miss Kithinji’s ‘The Rise and Fall of Gengetone’ Documentary

Published on

Kenyan media personality and brand influencer Miss Kithinji, commonly known as ‘Miss B’, is in the spotlight for doing a document explaining why Gengetone is no more.

Miss B

Dj Kalonje, speaking through his Instagram account, expressed his disappointment in the documentary web series, hinting that he sees no reason why the documentary was done and that there are young upcoming artists that are still doing well in the same genre.

I’m just wondering how someone can document the rise and fall of Gengetone when I’m just touring with @fathermohtv. Why do we hate our own, though?.

He goes on urging Kenyans to learn to embrace their own despite the challenges that may be, as that is the only way the artists will be motivated to keep grinding and not crumble.

Kenyans, let’s love our own yawa!!!! Munakill self-esteem for these budding youngsters rather than using that energy to uplift and promote them.

He remains firm in his statement that Gengetone isn’t going anywhere. Inasmuch as there might be setbacks, that doesn’t mean that we should stop supporting our own.

Gengetone is and will still be there, Haijakufa. Set back, ndio, yes.” Dj Kalonje wrote on his page.

Another group of people having the same opinion was ‘The Mic Cheque Podcast’ that discussed it on their show, saying that the genre is alive; it just took another shift that’s arbantone and nothing much has changed.

How has Gengetone fallen? Isn’t Gengetone the same as Arbantone? … for you to do an entire hour????. How can you just say the rise and fall of Gengetone—are you n**s? Bro!!.

The top streaming song every year has to be Gengetone, so it doesn’t add up.”

An Insight on what ‘The Rise and Fall of Gengetone’ Documentary is all about


Miss B, one of our dedicated journalists that we are proud of, recently released her first documentary series that is now streaming on our YouTube channel, which clearly highlights and explains the reason why Gengetone genre music is no more and doesn’t thrive like it used to in the good old days.

The documentary, which is 1 hour, 6 minutes long, has a compilation of different artists and DJs from the country who have been in the game long enough, airing their different opinions on why Gengetone music never lasted, despite it dominating the entertainment industry for over a century.

Among the people who were voicing was Kenyan comedian Eric Omondi, who said the reason why Gengetone failed was because some of the artists were very much unaware of how music is run and mostly wanted to do it to gain fame and relevancy, hence failing to adhere to the stipulated terms that are supposed to be adhered to when one’s doing music.

Gengetone ilifail because ilikam na Ughetto Mob!!” Eric Omondi shared his opinion.

You can watch the whole documentary series below. Not only does it criticize lazy artists and why the genre failed, but it also gives an insight on how artists, producers, and even DJs can perfect their craft and remain relevant without suffering the same fate that incompetent artists are facing.
