PGGSS Contestants spend more than they earn from the competition - Mico

Mico on stage

 Afro beat singer Mico Prosper aka The best revealed that musicians in the Primus Guma Guma Super Star competition spend much money to look good on stage compared to what they earn monthly.

The fading singer said this on KT Radio 96.7s Idols show on Saturday night in a phone interview.

“Artistes in Guma Guma end up using much money than they earn to look like super stars on stage as the competition states and end up with nothing in their pockets,” said singer Mico.

Mico added that, that’s why established musicians ignore the competition when nominated and aim at doing their shows as usual.

The singer contested in Primus Guma Guma super star season three and was eliminated at the last point.

One of the artistes who turned down the offer to participate in the competition this season is songstress Knowless Butera, she gave reasons of having already contracts to work with other companies.

By the time Mico contested in the competition, artistes were paid Rwf 500,000 per month which was increased by Bralirwa in season four to one million francs following musicians complaints.

Even then, the Akabizu hit maker maintains that he is not yet convinced by the increment of monthly pay to artistes compared to shows and advertisement musicians do for Bralirwa.

Primus Guma Guma is the biggest music competition in Rwanda that aims at promoting local artistes across the country as well as boosting their daily incomes.

Normally at the end of the competition, most of the artistes remain struggling to pay debts they owe to designers, dancers and end up disappearing from the music scene.

Mico boasts of songs like Akabizu, Umutaka and Kule.
