He went on to list a number of A-list artistes who should never be paid less than Sh600, 000 per show.


Tough Conditions

“Please be notified that this year I will personally scrutinise every detail of every event!!! I want to know how much artists are paid. I want to ensure that every artist is paid 70 percent of their money prior and 25 percent on the day of the event before the event. Every a list artist must be paid not less than ksh 600,000. By A list I mean the following.

“Nadia Mukami - KSH 600,000

Sauti sol - KSH 2.8 MILLION,” reads Omondi’s post in part.

“All the b list artist must be paid not less than ksh 450,000. i.e Ethic, Trio Mio etc. All events must be headlined by a Kenyan artist whether Beyoncé is performing or not!!!

Security must be provided for all artist. A world class backstage for all artist is non negotiable,” he added.
