Kaveve Kazoze Hitmakers Plead for Help, Reveal they Never made Money from the Hit Song

Kenya’s Gengetone sensation, Spider Clan, renowned for their chart-topping track ‘Rieng Genje’ featuring catchy lyrics like ‘Cash crop ya Nyandarua ni Mawaru,’ ‘Kaveve kazoze,’ and ‘unibebe hadi mbere ya kerende,’ is seeking assistance.

Surprising many, the musicians disclosed that they did not profit financially from their viral hit, despite its prolonged trendiness.

Contrary to expectations, they clarified that they did not gain any monetary rewards from the song. Only after the song garnered 4 million views did they realize its potential for monetization.

They revealed that the sole beneficiary of the song’s numerous views was the sound producer, who successfully monetized it, leaving the artists with no financial gain despite their hard work and creativity.

In a candid interview with Jalang’o TV, the singers of Kaveve Kazoze expressed that although Mike Sonko facilitated their travel and accommodation for a performance in Mombasa, he failed to fulfill promises made to support them afterward.

Disappointment set in when Mike Sonko cut communication after the Mombasa show, and the promised assistance never materialized.

The group earnestly appealed to club promoters to consider booking them for shows, emphasizing their desire for opportunities to showcase their talent.

Addressing a past dispute with comedian 2mbili, Ngesh explained that she couldn’t accept the help offered by him, as it was directed solely at her and not the entire crew. While acknowledging that the incident strained their relationship, she clarified that she harbors no ill feelings toward the comedian.

Despite the group’s globally popular Gengetone hit amassing over 4.2 million views in the six months since its release, financial challenges persist for Spider Clan, urging the public and industry stakeholders for support.
