Reggae act Lutan Faya has joined the GreenFest campaign, a Kenyan initiative to save the planet through music. The reggae act, will be joining a host of other Kenyan stars for the 3-day music and arts festival December 31 to January 2, 2011.
The festival is an emerging annual new life festival that hopes to encourage young adults and the creative industry at large to take on and address the most serious and potentially dangerous consequences to their health and well being caused by Climate Change through music, arts, culture and interactions.
However signing Lutan to the cause has not been easy. The organizer Henry Kioko a.k.a Carlos Henry told Hot Secrets that, some promoters in Kenya are calling Lutan’s agent Ra-Umi Alkebulan to shortchange him.
“There are some people already calling Alkebulan from Kenya and seeking deals with Lutan. Kenyans are funny crooks. He was so surprised people would call him instead of working with us. We are the exclusive agents. We shall sell Lutan in Kampala, Zimbabwe and South Africa.”
Currently Lutan is getting heavy rotation on Fm Radio stations for his hits like Jail, Looking Hot, Mighty Mouth, Give Thanks featuring I Wayne and One Life. The other acts also signed for the cause include Wyre the Love Child and Mutinda.
