Musician Ben Githae reveals details of his deals with president Uhuru

Celebrated Kikuyu Musician Ben Githae has revealed how his deals with President Uhuru Kenyatta have helped him become rich. 

Speaking on Jalang’o TV on Tuesday, April 27, 2021 the Tano Tena hitmaker revealed that he was summoned by the head of state and handed an envelope full of cash at Nakuru State House in appreciation of his song Tano Tena.

In his statement, Githae revealed that his song had topped a Sauti Sol’s song from number one on top trending hits on the very day that it was released. 

“I had joined this guy since 2011 and it seemed they would be sent home. When I went to the studio to do another album, I asked the producer to listen to the song I had, the guy told me ‘this song is so huge.’

“He asked me to do a video of the song quickly. We did the video… The day we released, our song topped a Sauti Sol hit from number one on top trending,” Githae stated.

The hitmaker stated that president Uhuru and his deputy called in Nakuru State House to thank him for his song. He was put in Uhuru’s campaign team and his song was played on president Uhuru’s campaign trail the next day.

“No one had talked to me about the song for three days. While in Nyeri, my friend Anderson Waweru, who is close to Uhuru, called me. He told me the President was looking for me. He is at Nakuru State House and he has asked me to look for you.

“I went to Nakuru. I found him (Uhuru) with the DP (William Ruto). ‘You sang a good song and we have called you to say thank you and we would like you to be part of our campaigns.’ Uhuru told me. I was then given an envelope,” he added.

He revealed that upon counting the money, he discovered that it was a lot and he decided to count it after leaving State House.

He revealed that the song has generated millions through Skiza tune.

He further disclosed that he intends to do a song about the Building Bridges Initiative (BBI).

“We shall compose a BBI song and it will still trend. I have answered that question,” he explained noting that he had not composed the song yet.
