EASI T.R.T RETORTS SAYING THAT A US$250 FOR A FEATURE IS JUST A START, “I VALUE MYSELF, MY GIFT AND MY TIME MORE”

0

Could it be one of those “Get Rich Quick Schemes” or It’s a matter of “Value over Fame” ?

It is quite obvious that famous artists in Zimbabwe are highly paid for shows, appearances, endorsements and features. You may ask why, could it be because they’re big, have a huge following, work harder, good for business or their manager is just one hardheaded person.

In this case we look at a young talented artist who our sources claim to charge US$250 for a feature. EASi T.R.T is a 20 year old rapper,  singer/songwriter, graphic designer (Founder & owner of Easy Graphics), who also recently acquired a digital marketing certificate.

He is well known for having a number 1 topping  single called ‘Get Used To It’ and on radio charts, causing a controversy among fans after being compared to Stunner and Mudiwa, having the highest music streams (23 000) on Audio Mack, second to non other than the late hip-hop legend Cal Vin among many.

When asked about why he chose to charge US$250 he said “I value myself, my gift and my time more, and 250 is just a start”.


For someone who hasn’t yet ‘blown up’ like the well known industry figures like Jah Preyzar, Stunner, Asaph, Tammy Moyo & Holy Ten.

Asked why he thinks its necessary to charge such amount for his level an artist he said,


“I do not think it’s absurd, why should I undermine and diminish my gift all in the name of being unpopular, I value myself, I respect my craft and I put in the necessary work for people who want to work with me and there is only one EASi T.R.T out there.

He further noted artists are ignorant of the business side of music.


“Nobody is willing to invest because the artists do not know their value and the business side of the industry. Even the bible says, as a man thinketh so is he, Bulawayo Artists should change their mindset and think bigger”. he said.

I have been grinding and l still grinding and l never stopping cause the vision is winning, at the same time the subject is one winning.

Good news for the Zimbos as Spotify Technology SA is introducing its audio service in 80 markets across Asia, Africa and the Caribbean in the coming days, expanding the company’s potential market by some 1 billion people.

According to Alex Nörstrom, Spotify’s Chief Freemium Business officer, the company will expand into markets in Asia, Africa, the Caribbean, Europe, and he specifically called out Bangladesh, Pakistan and Nigeria as areas of focus since they have the “fastest growing internet populations in the world.” (You can find the full list of new markets below.) The most notable omission on Spotify’s list is China, where it already has a partnership with Tencent Music — in other words, don’t hold your breath.

Spotify is seeking to build on its head start as the leading audio service in the West to become the dominant player globally. While the company already has more than 345 million users, fewer than 20% come from Asia, Africa and the Middle East, where most of the world’s people live.

The full list of new markets includes :-

Angola, Antigua and Barbuda, Armenia, Azerbaijan, Bahamas, Bangladesh, Barbados, Belize, Benin, Bhutan, Botswana, Brunei Darussalam, Burkina Faso, Burundi, Cabo Verde, Cambodia, Cameroon, Chad, Comoros, Côte d’Ivoire, Curaçao, Djibouti, Dominica, Equatorial Guinea, Eswatini, Fiji, Gabon, Gambia, Georgia, Ghana, Grenada, Guinea, Guinea-Bissau, Guyana, Haiti, Jamaica, Kenya, Kiribati, Kyrgyzstan, Lao People’s Democratic Republic, Lesotho, Liberia, Macau, Madagascar, Malawi, Maldives, Mali, Marshall Islands, Mauritania, Mauritius, Micronesia, Mongolia, Mozambique, Namibia, Nauru, Nepal, Niger, Nigeria, Pakistan, Palau, Papua New Guinea, Rwanda, Samoa, San Marino, Sao Tome and Principe, Senegal, Seychelles, Sierra Leone, Solomon Islands, Sri Lanka, St. Kitts and Nevis, St. Lucia, St. Vincent and the Grenadines, Suriname, Tanzania, Timor-Leste, Togo, Tonga, Trinidad and Tobago, Tuvalu, Uganda, Uzbekistan, Vanuatu, Zambia, and Zimbabwe.

There was no date mentioned for the launch, the report said: “over the coming days”. But I can live with “Spotify is coming to Zimbabwe” for now.
