As Just40days reported, towards the end of 2016, Kenyans were treated to a rare sight of American RnB superstar Chris Brown who jetted to the country for a performance in Mombasa.
Joho, being governor 001, endorsed Chris Browns Kenyan tour, although the fact that he made a KSh 90 million killing for a one-hour performance left a bad taste in Kenyans mouths.
At the time, County Communications and Public Relations Director Richard Chaacha refuted claims Joho was behind the logistics of Chris Browns show, despite openly welcoming the superstar.
Two years down the line and Kenyans are on the governors case once again, reminding him that perhaps he was not in any position to push for Kenyan music because of the events of 2016.
