A beef is brewing between members of renowned Meru music group, Ameru Crew and Jojo king , a gospel artiste from Maua.
The beef emerged on social media after Jojo King posted a sneak preview of his upcoming video and warned the Ameru crew that ‘the King is back.’
In the video featuring DK kwenye beat, Jojo King clad in white declares himself ‘Meru king’.
This led to a retort from Wycliffe Muthomi
, a member of the Ameru Crew, who declared Jojo King a copy cat.
He then posted a preview of their upcoming video, Mazingira saying, “SOMEONE TELL Steve Roots Kumari
we the pioneers.. We invented this!
Muthomi continued, “Am not a beefing person but this dude from Maua is just too much! Ushawai skiza mziki mpaka unazima TV/Radio alafu unakunyua dawa ya kichwa kumaliza maumivu”
“I listened to some new music and watched a video by a purported Meru King.. And I think Hii aibu imetosha! Wewe SI Meru king ata queen huwesmake!!”
“Never listened to such WACK! Music in my life!!! I think this artist from Maua should desist from calling himself Eti #MeruKing Bure Kabisa.. How do you pick Ameru Crew ‘s chorus and proceed to do a collabo with Dk Kwenye Beat without our permission?….
But Jojo King answered: #Amerucrew mwinire was stolen from Tunwinire,you all have to wait until the king brings new stuffAmeru CrewwWycliffe MuthomieMuthomi…Iam your motor in this one…
One of the fans, Martin Mutwiri commented, “I honestly want to think that this whole Ameru Crew and Steve Roots Kumari (Jojo) beef is a promotional stunt to hype both of their videos.”
“If its a real one, I will be so embarrassed. I will be like the reason why we can’t be a power house is because we drag down our own. We shoot down our own, criticize our own and hate on our own.” he warned.
We hope Meru artistes work in harmony without belittling each other.
