One third of popular dance trio RozViccyCathy, Rozmerie Atim has shared that despite the glamour and sharing stages with some of the biggest international artistes who have staged shows here, sometimes they aren’t paid.
According to the trio, singers Bobi Wine, Bebe Cool and Jose Chameleon as it is widely known have a history of disrespecting dancers and not paying them, so they did suffer with them in their early days. They say they had even stopped working with the big three. However, Rozmerie says they are now an established brand and so before they show up, they must have been paid.
They note that singers Sheebah, Maurice Kirya and Navio are some of the amazing ones they have worked with because they pay well.
Rozmerie says generally there is lack of attachment to the value of art. Sometimes they send quotation to event organisers and they are asked since when they started asking for a lot of money.
