Chasing Clout by Kenyan Artists
Music is business and many have now understood this concept. When an artist releases a new music, the expense behind it is very costly. An average Kenyan musician spends more than ten thousand Kenyan shillings for one song, and this could even be more depending on the video and audio quality.
This is why artists chase clout to get fans talking and blogs writing about it and then afterwards release a song. This is a good marketing strategy. It helps songs go viral after release. Also, some artists pay influencers to hype their music on TikTok. This marketing strategy seems to work best and its also a marketing strategy one can use to promote their songs.
