How much money would you be willing to fork out just to meet one of the country’s celebrities? Or better still, how much do you think a Kenyan celebrity would pay to meet their contemporary?
Believe it or not, gospo-secular musician Willy Paul allegedly paid a whooping KSh 400,000 just to have a meeting with comedian Jalan’go!
This was revealed by the funny man who praised the singer in an Instagram post seen by TUKO.co.ke on Thursday, June 20.
According to Jalang’o, the Hallelujah hitmaker has finally made it judging with the amount of money he offered him so as to get his attention and a sit down with him.
The comedian claimed the singer wanted to have a meeting with him but he was busy and was forced to push their meeting forward, a move that did not bother Pozee who had initiated the meeting.
A patient Willy Paul waited until Jalas was ready for the meeting in which he showered him with KSh 400,000 for just accepting to meet him.
”So I make my way to Sankara. I meet Pozee with seven pumped guys, his security, and a few boys and four very beautiful ladies. So, I ask him, Mwana Mkunaji how can I help you? Before I speak Pozee pushes KSh 400,000 my way in cash telling me that’s for accepting to meet me. Okay,” claimed Jalas.
It is after that when the singer presented his proposal to hire the comedian as his official MC in his local and international events that will run for about an entire month.
Asked whether he could afford Jalang’o, the singer stayed calm, picked his cheque book, tore a page and handed to the comedian to write any amount he feels will fit him for his salary.
”So Pozee tells me he wants me to he his official MC. Apparently he has like 29 Gigs line up and he is heavily booked in the whole continent. He has a gig in South Africa, Nigeria, four in Tanzania , seven in Uganda and several in Kenya.
Busy schedule and apparently he said he travels with his PA, photographer, 14 dancers, his MC and his designer. I tell him I’m okay with it but since I am a busy person he has to tell me the dates. He asked me how much I will charge him. I told him Heavy J Baba is not cheap, he cuts a page from his cheque book and tells me to write my cost. This boy has arrived!! Boss Pozee I am at your service!” he added.
These, according to Jalang’o, are the standards he has always waited to see in the Kenyan entertainment industry.
