Kenyan creative industry has been hit so hard with the Covid-19 restrictions. The country went under lockdown early last year. All public gatherings have been under suspensions for the best part.Currently all public engagements are under suspensions and no events that are going on . Entertainers and content creators have suffered major blow because there are no many gigs available. Today Terrence the Creative took time to beg youtube to stop taxing kenya content creators because the country is under the lockdown.
He wrote the following
"Dear youtube @youtube please I beg you stop taxing us at this tough time, our country is under lockdown and we're no longer having much gigs as before.The entertainment industry is shut down. The little you give us monthly is what we use to run a few things here and there. If it's possible just taxation until further date ,let say after 8 months. Have mercy for content creators in kenya ,this could be our only source of income now.Thanks
Content creator Terrence Creative"
The message by Terence creative has been celebrated by many content creators in kenya seconding his motion. For a fact ,most Entertainers have no other source of income because the entertainment industry is closed. All the events ,bars and any live platform for performance is closed by the government.
Last week, most celebrities came together to ask the government of Kenya to unlock the country. Some even went to the streets to Champion the initiative. Terrence Creative has been praised widely for requesting youtube to suspend taxation to Kenyan content creators because of the economic tough times. The times have made many people lose jobs and their other source of income while relying on youtube to make money. Others have been kicked out for failing to pay their house rents.it's our hope that youtube will hear the request from Terrence Creative.
