Socialite Huddah Monroe recently announced that she stopped club hosting as promoters pay peanuts.
The petite beauty disclosed that promoters shortchange people and she’d rather sleep than get peanuts. “I no longer do club hostings coz my rate card went way up there…and most promoters like to shortchange a nigga…so for peanuts I’d rather sleep comfortably in my bed than hop onto a flight to go receive ya pocket change. Hope we clear??” she announced.
While Huddah has quit the club appearance business, her rival Vera Sidika seems to be raking it up judging from the number of club appearances she has been doing recently. In an interview with our Correspondent, Vera disclosed that club hosting is good business for her as she can make up to Ksh600, 000 in an international club.
“When I’m in Kenya, my club appearance fee is different from Tanzania, Uganda or going to China or Malaysia or even the USA. Because when I travel to America to host an event I consider it’s like 25-hour flight, so that’s like a whole day wasted, then you just won’t just do the club appearance and leave you have to rest for like 3 days.International shows are more expensive. My international fee is from 6,000 dollars (Ksh600, 000) upwards, the promoter purchases a first class ticket and books me into a 5-star hotel. When it’s a show in East Africa I am a bit more flexible since it’s about an hour’s flight so I charge at least 3,000 dollars and locally in Nairobi I charge 2,000 dollars,” She told Clouds.
Aside from club hosting, Vera makes money from The ‘Vera Sidika Beauty Parlour’ and from her art as she is a painter.
“I got a job that earned me a lot of money at once. I had a tender in Nigeria to do some abstract paintings as I’m an artist, they were opening a hotel. I got a deal to create 55 paintings and each painting was 15,000-10,000 dollars. The project earned me more than 500,000 dollars,” Vera revealed.
