In 2021, the Kenyan music scene faced a significant loss as the popular Thitima hit makers, Kymo, Stigah, and their manager Kabi wa Jesus, went their separate ways.
The aftermath of their split left fans puzzled and searching for updates on the whereabouts of these once-chart-topping artists.
The unraveling of their musical journey began in 2017 when Kymo disclosed that the absence of a formal contract or agreement led to their dissolution.
The trio, faced with the challenge of dividing earnings without a clear guideline, found themselves at an impasse. With Kabi wa Jesus as their manager, the task of determining equitable shares became more complex.
Kymo and Stigah shared the complexity of their situation, emphasizing the lack of guidance on how to allocate percentages, resulting in disagreements that ultimately led to the group’s disbandment.
Since the split, the trio seems to have vanished from the limelight, raising concerns among Kenyans who are now questioning the reliability and sustainability of the Kenyan music industry.
The absence of clear structures and financial stability might have played a role in the artists’ disappearance, leaving fans and industry observers in the dark.
As fans continue to seek updates on the Thitima hit makers, their story highlights broader issues within the Kenyan music industry.
Some argue that the industry’s lack of dependability and financial security could be a driving force behind artists going missing or struggling to sustain their careers.
This mystery surrounding the Thitima hit makers serves as a wake-up call for the Kenyan music industry to address structural shortcomings.
Establishing clear contracts, promoting financial transparency, and ensuring fair compensation for artists could contribute to a more stable and thriving music scene, preventing future disappearances and disappointments.
