However, Kimani took to her twitter handle to share her thoughts on the exclusion of Kenyans on the project describing the action as depressing.

She wrote “As much as we celebrate with our fellow Africans …. The obvious exclusion of Kenyans / East Africans on this Soundtrack is Depressing…. The movie was based on KENYA”

Meanwhile, Beyonce earlier spoke on her reason for selecting the few African stars, saying she wanted to ensure that she worked with the best from Africa and not just sample sounds from Africa.

Speaking to ABC Information, she said: ‘’This soundtrack is a love letter to Africa and I wished to ensure we discovered the most effective expertise from Africa, and never simply use a number of the sounds and did my interpretation of it. I wished it to be genuine to what’s stunning concerning the music in Africa.”
