Kenny Saint Best, formerly known as Kenny Saint Brown, is a popular gospel artiste in Nigeria who has been in the music industry for a long time. Her family is also synonymous to the entertainment industry in Nigeria.

One of her siblings, Kenny Ogungbe, also known as Baba Keke, is one of the few people who revolutionized the booming music industry Nigeria now boasts of. He set up the Primetime Africa. He and his friend-cum-partner, Dayo Adeneye, well known as D-One, can never been forgotten when the history of the entertainment sector in Nigeria is narrated.

Though many still don’t regard KSB as a gospel artiste as she claims, however, she is still a singer who wields much influence in the industry courtesy her brother’s influence. She has even produced a protégé, Essence, who was once her backup singer.

Speaking with in an interview some months ago, the former wife of defunct member of Remedies music group, Eddy Montona, disclosed that the problem with the Nigerian music industry is because there is no leadership.

She was particular about the nudity being promoted in some music videos, one of which made her raised an alarm on Wande Coal’s music video in 2012, which was later banned from being played on television.

She, however, queried the regulatory body of banning songs and music videos after they have become a national anthem and charged them to wake up from their slumber.

“It seems they (regulatory bodies) are sleeping. It is until everybody has seen it (music videos promoting nudity) that they now ban. In Nollywood, some movies are termed ‘not to be broadcast’, but in music, there is nothing of such,” KSB fumed.

“You know the problem with the music industry,?” she asked, “there is no trade union or leadership,” she answered herself. She added further that, “so, it is a free-for-all industry and nobody is saying anything about it.”

She also said that, “I have been here for a long time and legacies have been laid. If anybody feels that they can just come and mess things up, some of us will talk and kick against it. We didn’t inherit this (nudity) from Onyeka Onwenu, Sunny Okunsun, Ebenezer Obey, even Fela did not bring nudity outside the Calaculta.”

KSB has released many singles and has done collabos with top artises lie Terry G, late DaGrin and many others.
