Nadra is a Swahili word that means rare.
Nadra music, previously known as Linda, had their first launch as Nadra at Onyx lounge and restaurant over the weekend.
The duo decided to re-brand after leaving Robert Waweru‘s Linda Entertainment.
Additionally, the two parties fell out due to lack of transparency in finances, and the work environment that was not conducive for creativity.
”WHEN WE JOINED WAWESH WE HAD A VISION OF OURSELVES BEING SO FAR BY NOW BUT ALONG THE WAY AFTER SIGNING THE CONTRACT, THINGS JUST STARTED BECOMING HARD, LIKE REALLY HARD. WE GAVE OUR ALL TO A SELFISH PERSON WHO JUST WANTED TO USE US TO GET QUICK CASH,” RAYCH SAID
However, Robert Waweru stated that whatever issues they had is now behind them and he wishes the girls nothing but good vibes, love and success in their new venture.
IT’S UNFORTUNATE THAT THEY SEE IT THAT WAY. I CAME UP WITH THE IDEA FOR THE LINDA GIRL GROUP, INVESTED ALL THE MONEY FOR THE PROJECT, GAVE THEM A FREE STUDIO AND FINANCED THE VIDEOS, MUSIC PRODUCTION, MUSICIANS, SONGRWITERS, THEY HAD FREE MEALS AND I EVEN PAID FOR SOME OF THEIR RENT. I LEGALLY OWN THE BRAND LINDA AND IT’S COMPANY. THEIR WISH WAS FOR ME TO LET IT GO AND THEY TRIED TO HIJACK IT WITHOUT MY CONSENT WHICH I REFUSED. IT’S NOW BEHIND ME AND I HOLD NO GRUDGES, MAY THEY SUCCEED WITH THEIR NEW VENTURE, I WISH THEM ONLY LOVE AND GOOD VIBES. ROBERT WAWERU
ASHA CAME TO THE STUDIO WHEN WE WERE RECORDING AND WAS LIKE YES!I WANT TO WORK WITH THIS GIRLS AND SO FAR SO GOOD”ALEXIS

Nadra advised new artistes to
‘GO FOR IT! NEVER GIVE UP! NO MATTER HOW MANY PEOPLE TRY TO PUT YOU DOWN OR TAKE ADVANTAGE OF YOUR TALENT, DO NOT GIVE ANYONE THE SATISFACTION OF SEEING YOU GIVE UP BECAUSE THEY PUT YOU DOWN,’ ALEXIS ADDED.
