The popular singer talked about how much he spent to pay the American artists he had worked on so far during a recent meeting between Tanzanian musicians and the Tanzania Communications Regulatory Authority.
Diamond collaborated with international artists such as Ne-Yo, Omarion and rapper Rick Ross, and this obviously cost him millions of shillings.
The singer said that Non-Yo took from him $ 104,000 for the Marry You song, and Rick Ross asked him for $ 56,000 for videotape of the film “Waka”.
Singer Bongo said that he turned to rapper Tyga to work with him on a new project, and that the artist demands that he be paid $ 150,000 before he agrees to any cooperation.
According to Mpasho, Diamond stressed that the music industry has evolved and market standards are high, and over time the situation will only get worse. He also added that the industry is full of competition, so artists are forced to invest in their work and produce good recordings that can sell them on the international market.
