Harrysong who is signed to Kcee’s Fivestar music and wrote Kcee’s limpopo told Punch that these days he charges as much as 1 million naira to write a song.
The Limpopo writer also boasts that his son “Mandela song”That’s good oh! made over 50 million naira from MTN callerback tunes.
He said: “Before now we charged between N100, 000 and N2000, 000 for a song.
Today I charge as much as 1million to write a song. Truth is, Nigerian artistes have begun to appreciate songwriters. They pay me my money and appreciate me.
I have written a lot of songs but I don’t talk about them because Nigerian artistes don’t like it when the songwriters take credit for composing songs for them.”
The proceeds from the caller-back tune is actually worth more than N50m. Truth is, I was paid a lot of money; you know – when they say money that can change someone’s life.
That’s the value of what I received .I can’t reveal the exact amount because we work as a team. So, all the money realised is shared among us.
You just want to forget all the years of suffering. It’s not a mere hype because the money is there. The song is everywhere. You go to South-Africa , the girls are crazy about it.”
