There is no doubt that entertainers are one of the categories of people who have been massively affected by the COVID-19 pandemic after performances were halted close to two years now.
These have been advised to go digital but this is a new phenomenon that’s currently not yet well embraced.
The Soda Ginjale rapper said that artists should create and monetize websites to earn from their brands.
“As an artist, the best way to make money right now is to create a website and monetize it, and bypass these streaming platforms,” Zamba said.
The rapper gave an example of himself on how he’s using the Nsimbi website to mint millions of shillings.
He then revealed how he made over a billion shillings from the sale of his recent released Spear Album.
“We have made more money from ‘Nsimbi’ music than we ever made in the Baboon Forest Entertainment. Besides, I sold my ‘Spear Album’ at UGX 1 Billion,” Zamba added while appearing on NBS After 5 program.
The rapper also took time to explain the type of music he now calls Nsimbi music. Apparently, it differs a little bit from Lugaflow.
The Baboon Forest boss said that the music is a celebration of world culture.
He added that it’s a community where they celebrate different cultures, and you’re able to share ideas from your journeys.
Meanwhile, his singing partner and wife Tamar said that although their music style is complex, they get lots of customers, especially from East Africa.
With the entertainment centers still on lockdown, it seems like artists will have to devise other ways of earning.
Some have even quit the music industry in order to settle into other revenue-earning businesses.
