Kenyan musician Akothee has left many tongues wagging after revealing that she is one of the highest paid singers in the country .
Speaking during an interview with Willy M Tuva ,she disclosed that it it costs a hefty one million shillings to book her for a gig.This excludes two hundred thousand shillings for other logistics .
“My performance fee is ten thousand dollars minus logistics, if you don’t that don’t call me or my manager coz I will not come,” she revealed.
“Mimi pesa zangu zinalipwa kuanzia kwa logistics,gari yangu mimi nitakuja kivyangu, mimi promoter haninunulii chakula, mambo ya promoters kuweka wasani njaa kwa stage sitaki”.
Defending her performance fee, the self-proclaimed president said that Kenyan promoters can afford to pay international artists millions but pay local artists peanuts.
Adding that Kenyan artists should also raise their performing standards because they are talented brands.
“My standards are not high, Kenya promoters can afford to pay Davido one million, the problem I have with Kenya promoters is that they underrate Kenyan musicians and it’s also high time Kenyan musicians to raise their standards “
“Kidogo imelipwa ni four hundred thousand na nikidogo sana, saa 400k nitafanyia nini na band peke yake nalipa 300k band alone without dancers,” she revealed.
