Gospel musician Kenny Saint Best, who was popularly known for her songs while under the Kennis Music label, owned by her brother Kenny Ogungbe, has revealed the secret behind her not getting the recognition she is worth in the industry and it is as a result of the thought that she is using her brother’s fame for her music career.
According to Punchng, KSB stated that she faced a lot of set backs and part of the reasons for this is because she is a brother to Kenny Ogungbe.KSB said:
“When I joined the music industry, it was not easy to convince people that I was talented. They felt that my brother had a hand in everything I was doing. People didn’t give me credit for music; they only knew me as Kenny Ogungbe’s younger sister. It was as if I didn’t deserve any credibility as an artiste.
“Anywhere I visited, they would address me as Baba Keke’s sister. I didn’t like that at all.To get to where I am today, I had to prove myself to the world. I needed to work harder. I didn’t want to ride on my brother’s hard work. I thank God I was able to earn people’s respect in the long run.”
