With many Kenyan celebrities touting for Nyashinski to win the much coveted MTV EMA Best African Act Award, US-based Kenyan rapper, Lexx, is leading a campaign for diaspora artistes, drumming up support for the homeboy. Lexx, who spoke to Spice, stated that Nyashinski has never relented in exploring talent and since he came back home, he has been leading the charts.
“My good brother @realshinski has been nominated in the prestigious #MTVEMA Awards, we need to get this award home. Nyash has never relented in exploring where talent can get you, after being here in the US for 10 years, he went back home, ever since, he has been making headlines. As Kenyan pioneers and artiste out here, I will help rally up votes from the diaspora…” he stated.
Lexx burst onto the music scene in 2001 as a member of the group XYZee famed for hits Kwa Nini, Kinyama, Panda, Juu Yako and Tafuta, which were well received.
