Ethic Entertainment protest 'assault' at Koroga festival

Ethic Entertainment.

Lamba Lolo hit makers Ethic Entertainment have protested, on social media, the treatment they got at a Koroga Festival.

The group was a headliner in the first day of the 26th edition of Koroga festival.

According to posts on their social media pages, the group says one of its members, Zilla, their driver, their hype man Adrian and their DJ Katta were harassed by security personnel at the event.

Responding to the post, someone who attended the event claims he witnessed the scuffle.

He posted that an altercation ensued between the group and security personnel and one of the group members assaulted a security personnel, prompting a retaliation.

To back up their claim, the group posted a video showing Adrian in a hospital bed.

The group says it will take legal action against the organisers of the Koroga Festival.

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

It’s with deep regret that we have to post this. Koroga festival called us and told us to perform as the headliners for the Koroga festival Saturday edition. We’d done one event with them previously and since we had no issues the last time and also because it is a huge platform, we obviously jumped at the opportunity to perform again. This time, However, the treatment we got from them was more than hostile. As we speak four of our members including our Dj, hypeman , Zilla and our driver are all in hospital, brutally injured by Guards from the K9 security company and other festival organizers. We want to state that we will be seeking legal redress as we need due compensation from Koroga and K9 security group for our medical bills et al. As we push Kenyan music to the world we hope that one day,Kenyan artists will one day be treated the same as artists from other countries. The Saturday event this time surpassed all expectations and is definitely going to surpass their Sunday one. You know why? Because we Kenyan artists have worked our asses off to finally get Kenyans to support their own. And this is an agenda we’re willing to push to the very end. To all our loyal fans we’re simply asking that you support our cause. #Justiceforethic #RespectKenyanartists
