Jua Cali says music pirates were great for the Kenyan entertainment industry
Jua Cali has voiced his disagreeable viewpoint. The ‘Kiasi’ hitmaker claims that music piracy has made it easier for artists to reach a wider audience, particularly in rural areas.
The musician wrote in the Instagram caption:
“Kuna time bro wangu mbigi aliniambia “kama song yako haiPairetiwi(Piracy) we jua hio ngoma yako si kali” At first sikushika anasema nini but later nika understand coz No 1. Wasee wa kupirate walikua wanafikisha song zetu places sisi wenyewe hautungeweza, huko ndani mashinani.
No 2. Piracy ilimake songs zetu more popular yes wasee wakuPirate walikua wanamake chapa thru that but in the long run sisi ma artist ndio tulibenefit more coz doe zetu zilirudi ten fold thru performances and endorsements.
Morale of hii story ni Wasanii!! Ingia studio make songs dope which everyone can benefit from and thru that wewe ndio utamake doe mob kushinda everyone else. Piracy chini ya maji ilikua kitu fiti especially kwa artist anaanza. BigUp to all creatives out there tuendele na kazi.”
