Ochieng’ who performed a traditional mourning piece left judges unimpressed as none of the 4 gave him a Yes to proceed to the next round.
He was kicked out of the stage before even finishing his perfomance.
According to Ochieng, professional mourning is just a talent like any other which needs recognition, that’s why he was motivated to show it to the judges at the much hyped regional show.
Check out the video below.
The show debuted on Sunday evening and was aired on RTV, Citizen TV in Kenya, while in Tanzania Clouds Media aired the show and NBS TV aired it in Uganda. It will be showing every Sunday. The finale will be in October.
