The entertainment industry has been hit so hard by the Covid-19 pandemic.
Those in the industry have always expressed their hardships since the pandemic hit and restrictions were put in place.
Banning of social gatherings in order to curb the spread of the virus saw the closure of entertainment joints.
In August, restaurants, hotels, Deejays and Artists rallied behind the hashtag #SaveOurRestaurant. This was their cry for help as the industry was suffering. Those who did not lose their jobs were sent home with no pay. The gigs that put food on the tables of deejays and artists were no more.
Some of the oldies in the industry like Nameless supported the movement.
Khaligraph Jones penned down his plea to President Uhuru on Instagram. He speaks on behalf of everyone in the entertainment industry:
“Kindly on behalf of the Creative Industry of Kenya we are Requesting that you allow us to get back to work, allow for the reopening of Clubs and Restaurants, Measures and precautions shall be Taken to ensure Covid 19 doesn’t further spread, The youth are suffering from Depression in Silence, Kindly look into this Matter, also Some of our Hits songs are Going To waste, People want to see @femi_one and @mejjagenge perform Utawezana.
