City DJ Aludah has taken to social media to vent his frustration with the local entertainment circuit following a lockdown that has now lasted close to a year and a half. In his opinion, the whole industry is dead and the little hope he has is lost every day that passes. Therefore, he has considered other money-making ventures for survival, and one of them rubbish collection.
He tweeted: “Entertainment yaffa… we are just waiting for burial dates. Kati tukola bilala…ela if I knock at your door to hand you rubbish collection buveera… Don’t ask too many questions. Just get your kaveera quietly and get back to whatever it is you were doing.”
A number of entertainers likely relate with Aludah’s sentiments given most have partly abandoned music for other ventures, mainly agriculture because a huge chunk of their earnings came from performances at events, ceremonies and in bars.
