Nigerian artistes choose to come to Kenya for shows because they earn a lot of money, unlike in their country, Nigerian, artiste Mr Eazi has said.
“East Africa is arguably the most receptive spot for music,” Mr Eazi said in an interview with Okay Africa.
“In East Africa, they listen to hip-hop, they listen to their local music, they also listen to music from the west of Africa, they listen to pop,” he said.
“So in recent times, aside from when I do festivals or branded shows in the UK or wherever, nobody is going to pay you $100,000 in Nigeria to do a show or even $60,000 to come and jump on stage for a set. But you can easily get that money by walking into Kenya or walking into the Gambia.”
Last year, Diamond Platnumz revealed the minimum amount he is paid per show is Sh7 million. The singer, who is currently the most sought after in East Africa, unveiled the details after his hit song with Rayvanny was banned.
