Kenya Os, the emerging pop sensation from Mazatlán, Sinaloa, recently made headlines in the American Post News as she received her first-ever nomination for the Latin Grammy Awards. The Latin Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences recognized her efforts in the category of Best Long Form Music Video for her groundbreaking short film, Universo K23.
While a large portion of her fanbase erupted in celebration, the news simultaneously sparked a surge of criticism from naysayers. These individuals questioned her legitimacy in being nominated alongside renowned artists such as Camilo, Dawer X Damper, Fanm Zetwal, and Beatriz Luengo.
Amid the fervor, Xelbor, a notable figure in the Mexican entertainment industry known for collaborating with Danna Paola on the music video ‘XT4S1S’, publicly criticized Sony Music Mexico. Xelbor accused the label of undermining the efforts of other “talented” artists by supporting Kenia Os.
This subsequently reignited old rumors of a rivalry between Danna and Kenia, despite both artists’ efforts to quash such claims and promote unity among their fans.

In response to the rising tide of criticism, Kenia, often referred to as “La Kenini”, did not remain silent. She took to her platform on X (formerly known as Twitter) to address the detractors head-on.
“I am part of the creative direction and production of my entire album K23, my team, and the Flakka directors. Especially Universo K23, since I wrote the script for the short film. I’m sorry, but this time it’s your turn to watch, shut up, and endure because we will enjoy this achievement,” stated Kenia Os emphatically.
