Coast based artiste Susumila has for the first time opened up on how Mombasa governor Ali Hassan Joho has helped boost his comeback in the industry.
The singer revealed that the Governor has an initiative that has been helping coast based artistes financially.
The singer also rubbished allegations that the governor supports Tanzanian artistes more than he supports local artistes.
According to Susumila, the Bongo artistes have a strong social media presence and are big in showbiz and that is why there is an illusion that governor 001 only supports them.
“The Governor has really helped us a lot. Personally I can’t tell you for sure he has helped me financially and there are still other projects we are working on. My video for ‘Warembo’ featuring LavaLava was sponsored by the governor. We spent over a Million for the video and I did not contribute a coin. He also sponsored Masauti’s song ‘Dondosha’ featuring Lavalava. In fact any time you hear the phrase 001 in a song just know that he sponsored the works in that particular music.” He said
Susumila revealed that he is currently working on a collaboration with Willy Paul, Ommy Dimpoz and a Nigerian artiste whose Identity he refused to reveal but disclosed that all projects are sponsored by the governor himself.
