Some people may find it surprising and ridiculous that someone they barely know is charging that amount. Yeah, it’s insane, but what EASI T.R.T charges that much is what it is and that’s just a start for him.
One of those artists who perfectly builds his empire at his own rate, brick by brick, is Hip Hop MC EASi T.R.T.20. Born in Bulawayo, based in Entumbane, young Emmanuel Ashley Simango, popularly known as EASI T.R.T, never had something on a silver plate that he had to work hard and had to spend his time in amassing as much information as possible.
He taught himself how to write music, rap, sing, compose, design graphics, market, etc. All these items came in handy in his career, but the question remains, “why to charge $250 for just a feature?”
This is exactly what the superstar had to say.
“I charge that much because I feel like that’s what I should get for the work and time I put in, my time is the most valuable thing in my life and me taking that time and using it for somebody else’s project when I could be doing something else I gotta be paid for it”
“Time is money bro and another reason is because I took years to perfect my craft and to acquire the skills and knowledge I have including building my brand and that does not go for free”
EASi later went on to state that he preferred value over fame.
“sometimes it is how you value yourself, I dont have to be a celebrity figure for me to start charging figures for features that’s how prominent I am,” he said.
There are definitely more explanations for his argument, but we had to stop at some point in time. So now you know people and all the artists out there are confident enough to know your worth, don’t let society make you humble enough to degrade yourself.
