Kenyan rapper Prezzo is said to be broke after he failed to afford the studio fees of top recording studios in Tanzania. According to The Reverend’s column on the Star Newspaper, the rapper was even offered a 75% discount but it was too high for his pocket.
It is said that he walked from studio to studio looking for a cheaper offer.
A source whispered to the Reverend that he gave out all his accessories to be allowed to record at a Tanzanian based record label
“Braza, huyo msanii alitupea hizo bling bling zaka kwa sababu hakua na hela. Jameni, hatuwezi msaidia. Tulidhani yeye ni big deal huko Kenya, salala kumbe hana chochote!”
Prezzo spoke to Kiss Fm website exclusively on the said matter. He rubbished the allegations and added that he instead bought more jewellery while over there.
“Thats not true. I can even give you my video director’s number. They can confirm that I went there and bought even more jewellery. I came back with more and not less jewellery. I had my own stylist and I had everything intact. As a matter of fact with three people, we flew there, we didn’t even drive.”
The My City My Town hitmaker further says he is not using drugs and for him to fly out his crew to Tanzania means he is financially fit.
“All these allegations gives people a rush when they point fingers at me. They will say Prezzo does drugs but then I’ve never been to rehab even ones in my lifetime. All these allegations are formulated out of jealousy. For me to travel with my crew already goes to show we are financially fit. If I wouldn’t be, then I wouldn’t be able to accommodate two other people with me.”
He went ahead to say he will not reveal the price of the jewellery he bought while in Tanzania because that is like an investment for him
“I cease to reveal such information. My jewellery speaks for itself. Ever since 2003 I’ve been wearing jewelery, I love them and its been like an investment.”
