Outrage at high cost of Diamond and Davido’s video remix
The video remix of the song Number One originally done by Tanzania’s Diamond and now in collaboration with Nigeria’s Davido, cost Sh2.1 million.
This amount did not include the cost of Diamond and his six-man team travelling to Lagos and accommodation for two weeks, last November.
Directed by renowned video producer Clarence Peters, critics say that he overcharged them for a remix.
“That is equivalent to the amount you pay to shoot a video for a new song, not a remix,” said a top Tanzanian musician.
