Kenyan singer Brandy Maina has voiced her frustration at online trolling from Kenyans on Twitter (KOT) and expressed her desire to leave the country.
The 'Kuna Kuna' hitmaker took to social media to share her feelings, stating that creatives are undeserving of the toxic environment in Kenya.
"This country doesn't deserve creatives, I pray we all leave this toxicity!" Brandy wrote on her social media page.
She went on to add that she was inspired by the recent move by fellow creative Elsa Majimbo to relocate, expressing her eagerness to also leave Kenya.
"God please open my doors. This can't be my home forever. It is your own that kill you," she added.
Brandy had earlier announced that she would be limiting her collaborations this year to a few select artists such as Nyashinski, Kinoti, Watendawili, Femi One or Fathermoh. She also requested to be left out of any interviews.
However, some netizens criticized Brandy, accusing her of being arrogant and feeling like she had already "made it" in the industry.
The incident highlights the issue of online trolling and the impact it can have on individuals in the public eye.
It also highlights the importance of creating a safe and supportive environment for creatives in Kenya to thrive.
