According to Wahome Thuku who has posted on his official Facebook page, Waititu has been calling them one by one asking in them to meet him at his controversial Delta Hotel in Nairobi at 7am. According to Thuku, the artists were offered a token of ksh. 100k which was to be paid per day per artist to do exactly what they are doing for Azimio to Kenya Kwanza. However, according to report given, the artists rejected the offer. They have said, "forget it".
According to the whatsapp screenshot shared by Thuku, the conversation was clear that Waititu wanted to lure the artists with money to campaign for UDA but they resisted.
"So baba yao has been the role to call and invite artists? Wameogopa after kuona vile tv kuko he is calling our artists from Azimio eti wakutane kesho" they wrote. However, the people Behind the conversation are yet to be identified
