Does Reggae really pay

Despite reggae getting through the ears of many in the world reggae legends are known to be poor this could be the real reason many artist are running in dancehall industry with all nudity ,recklessness and violence.In an interview with one of the upcoming artist in kenya sevannah benzy his point of view is probably reggae speaks of ghetto and many poor people that is what they need,an encouragement for a better tomorrow.poor people just can’t afford to pay for the costly tickets in a reggae show as an artist you have to charge cheap he said

Alot of reggae DJs are complaining despite having a huge fanbase and more listened to they are still underpaid.Now the DJs are never specialising into reggae but they still have to get into other genres that pays.

It is not even possible nowadays to convince people not to listen to hundreds of songs by Marley or lucky tube and listen to you they regard you as outdated

He even sites the well established reggae band gravitti that is not very famous despite huge media efforts trying to take it international.

Comment what you think.
