Shirko who met Jambo entertainment team on Thursday revealed that the studio was a gift to Coast and Kenyan artists who want to take their music to the next level and value music as self employment entity.
“I want to see Kenyan music at par with Bongo Flava, I have made stars in Tanzania and Zanzibar why not do the same back at home?” posed Shirko during the interview.
The famous ‘Nataka kuwa nawe’ hit maker who worked with Tanzania 2 Berries, ‘Berry black’ and ‘Berry white’ acknowledged the efforts done by Coast artists but said that most of them would quickly relent in the music industry.

“Do not forget that I am the pioneer of Yamoto band in Tanzania where I completely changed the flavour and the world embraced Yamoto band uplifting the young talents to the top in the entertainment industry, I want to do the same back at home,” he noted
