Tanzanian Gospel artist, Rose Muhando. has generated a debate with a poster and advert of her upcoming event in Nairobi. The Nibebe hitmaker will launch her new album, Nguvu Katika Neno, on February 27.
The event will take place at Villa Rosa Kempinski Hotel along Waiyaki Way, from 12 pm to 6 pm. An advert on her YouTube paged confirmed that she was charging Ksh 50,000 per person that will be paid through a pay bill number.
“I need your support and contribution so that I may continue preaching the word of God in all corners of the earth,” she said.
However, what sparked debate was the poster on her Instagram page which detailed that she was charging Shillings 50,000 per person for the event. The event organisers did not clarify whether the amount in question was in Tanzanian or Kenyan shillings as they did on the YouTube page.
The poster added that she had received corporate sponsorship worth 11 million shillings. In Kenyan figures, this stands at Ksh 521,302 for those who also assumed that the amount was in Tanzanian currency.
“Waaaa huku ni high end watu wangu hotel za nguvu kunaendanga masonko bwana. Huku ndiko Obama alilala baada ya kufika Kenya. Rozii ii pesa kama ni ya Kenya ni mingi sana. Hebu rekebisha hii bango hata wenye wako na kidogo waweze kufika. This is a high-end hotel that hosts the high and mighty. I remember former US President Barrack Obama spent some nights at the hotel when he toured Kenya. The amount charged is also outrageous. Kindly amend the poster,” Winfred Musuli added.
Her Villa Rosa Kempinski concert will be ranked as one of the most expensive events in terms of entrance fees in Kenya.
