“They first offered me $4,000 and explained that some of the artistes they have worked accepted the same amount. But I told them that if some artistes have taken it, I am different and I don’t take delight in sitting on a plane. I always do business so I asked my management to talk to them and add some more,” he told Sammy Flex on Pluzz FM today.

“So, they went and came back with $15,000. They spent about a year and half years to draw this final conclusion. We initially asked them to pay $30,000 but we concluded at $15,000. I told my management point blank that before I move to Kenya, $15,000 should first be paid,” he added.
