Kenyan singer, Victoria Kimani, has reacted to Beyonce’s exclusion of her country’s top stars in her new album, Lion King: The Gift, amidst collaboration with other African artistes.

The singer who was formerly signed to MI’s Chocolate City music label, took to her social media account to express her dissatisfaction.

Kimani revealed in a recent tweet that though she is happy for her fellow African artists who made the list of features, she finds the exclusion of Kenyan singers from the project rather depressing since the Lion King remake movie is based on Kenya.

She Tweeted:

“As much as we celebrate with our fellow Africans …. The obvious exclusion of Kenyans / East Africans on this Soundtrack is Depressing…. The movie was based on KENYA 🇰🇪”.

In reaction to her Tweet, the singer has come under fire as the Nigerian Twitter community floods her timeline with trolls while her fellow Kenyan people come to her rescue.

@M4mimie tweeted “Beyonce’s team selected the best artistes in Africa. Let that sink in 😐”

@theemekadiala tweeted “…It sucks not being represented I know, but let’s mot forget that they aren’t just representing their individual countries but Africa as a whole. Let’s all be happy for them and pray for other upcoming artistes to achieve even greater feats.”

@i_am50 tweeted
“She needed the best and famous African artists to work with… Sorry East Africans didn’t make the list, they should work harder( Be marketable).”

@grooveeshakes tweeted
“Kimani is online fighting for the nationality of animated lions.”

@pokochukwu tweeted
“Kenyans are shining enough during the yearly Lagos marathon na😂 don’t forget natgeo wild too. Allow us to shine in peace”
