The outbreak of corona virus has left local deejays in a financial limbo, after the Government ordered clubs to be closed to curtail the spread of the deadly virus.
Before the pandemic, top Kenyan deejays used to have a busy schedule thanks to the thriving deejaying industry that has grown in leaps and bounds.
But as soon as clubs were shut down, they were left in a stalemate after their source of live-hood was cut short.
Some of the deejays were forced to venture into online deejaying where they entertained fans on their social platforms and asked for donations but this didn’t work for many deejays.

He has also switched careers for a moment by venturing into business.

Crème’s father reportedly owns one of the largest agrovets in Kericho.
‘’There is no pressure here. There is more time for family and that is the most important thing.’’ He said.
Crème added that he is still an entertainer and the only thing that has changed is location.
‘’My brand as an entertainer has not changed. The only thing that has changed is where I put my head when I sleep at night. If a client wants me to do a gig, I will be there. ‘’ He further said.
