Kenyan Singer Addresses Fan’s Criticism Of His Collaboration With Fellow Artists


Kenyan musician, Okello Max has addressed criticism from a fan over his collaboration with fellow artists.

The talented artist recently found himself in the crosshairs of a fan who took issue with his latest collaboration with fellow artists Nadia Mukami and Prince Indah on his song ‘Mali Safi’.

In a bold move, the fan criticized Okello Max for deviating from his usual style and attempting to venture into Afrobeat and Amapiano genres.

The fan urged Okello to stick to his roots and deliver the raw Luo vibes that he is known for.

“Please keep to your normal self this Afrobeat/amapiano aint it give us your raw luo shit,” said the fan.

However, Okello Max was quick to respond to the critique, taking to his Insta stories to address the matter directly.

In a statement dripping with confidence, he emphasised the importance of constructive criticism while also asserting his artistic freedom.

“Positive criticism is healthy but there’s always a thin line between projecting your own preference and actually trying to make things better.

“I saw this being projected on my brother @princeindah on our beautiful collaboration with @nadia_mukami #malisafi,” said Okello Max.

He then defended his creative choices, stating that he was not going to be confined to one style.

“You find something not tickling your fancy, move on to the next.

“Don’t try box me. I’m like water, I can be in any form, liquid, solid and steam. Pick your box and sit in it,” he pointed out.
