• Ricc Berry advised artistes who fail to achieve success in music to shift their focus on other ventures
• His wisdom nugget came barely days after Stivo Simple Boy disclosed he had been suffering
Celebrated Eldoret-based Kenyan musician Ricc Berry has come out to help fellow musicians who are struggling to make a name for themselves in the much-competitive music industry.
Ricc Berry, famed for his hit song Pishori recently urged his music colleagues to try other business venture if music does not work for them.
Through a Facebook post seen by YEIYO.com, the star insisted that most artistes focus on music yet it is not their calling.
The musician held that artistes who find it hard to manoeuvre in the music industry should try something else in different fields which may work for them.
“Wanangu wa Eldoret and Kenya, mziki ukikataa tufanye kitu ingine. Labda this wasn’t our calling,” Ricc Berry wrote on Facebook.
His sentiments were echoed by fellow big time artistes and fans who noted that some artistes should just ditch music for other ventures since the aforementioned seems to have refused to work for them.
Ricc Berry’s word of advise came barely days after sensational online sensation Stivo Simple Boy came out to complain about the evils he has been facing in the music industry.
As earlier reported by YEIYO.com, Stivo vehemently accused his former manager of squandering money earned from his music.
While many Kenyans rallied behind Stivo Simple Boy and demanded for his fair treatment, quite a number felt music was not his calling hence the many challenges.
While trying to find out the best way Stivo Simple Boy can be helped, many Kenyans held that he should not focus on finding a management but instead manage himself and reap the benefits alone.
Following Stivo Simple Boy’s complaint, many people including MCSK CEO Ezekiel Mutua and MP Peter Salasya promised to help him in the best way they know how.
Mutua promised to help Stivo Simple Boy make money from his music.
As for Peter Salasya, the politician met the artiste and promised to build him a house and fully furnish it for him.
