Teenage musician Mario TJ Kasela, popularly known as Trio Mio, has dropped a hit in which he appears to hit out at critics who suggested he was not adequately prepared to write his Kenya Certificate of Secondary Education (KCSE) results.

The track highlights radio presenters Chito Ndhlovu and Cyd Wambui, who were having a chat about his preparedness or lack of it for his national examination results and how it might affect his music flow.

Trio Mio did not take the conversation lightly and released a freestyle song in response.

“I am waiting for his music post-KCSE. Already he has released one song and guys are saying that the pressure of KCSE was what was making him release good music. This year is his make-or-break point…if he passes this year and doesn’t put out a major hit, imagine he’ll be forgotten,” Ndhlovu said.

In response, Trio said in his less than two minutes song that even though he is not book-smart, he is a principal with a marking scheme when it comes to music. “Ka topic ni success niko na A kwa school of life, ile Knec itanipea haitawahi determine food ya mine,” says part of his song’s lyrics.

Adding that the transcripts’ alphabets should not make one feel profound, the Cheza Kama Wewe hitmaker advised, “Numbers juu ya bankslip zisikufanye usleep around.”

While reacting to the freestyle, Ndhlovu said that he was proud that his on-air conversation inspired the verse, and extended his support to the rapper. In a tweet, the presenter said, “Trio has done a dope freestyle one could say possibly inspired by a conversation Cyd Wambui and I had most recently. We are always happy to be conversation shapers and starters, especially for the Kenyan music/entertainment scene. Looking forward to that Trio 2023 major hit!”

However, Kenyans on Twitter (KOT) feel that Ndhlovu could have apologized to Trio Mio.
