Mr Vee has written two of the biggest hits of 2015, ‘Mwema’ and ‘Nikupendeze’ sang by Mercy Masika.
Many know him as the Gospel musician who has remained true to ‘Gospel’ music.
Earlier this week, Vee caused an uproar on his facebook after he posted what was termed as a discount.
Many of his friends and fans expressed shock and disappointment on learning that the ‘VIP’ singer charges to write music for other musicians.
However, speaking exclusively to Baraka FM on The Midday Café show with MC Rawnie, Mr. Vee had no words to spare for anyone who expects him to render his services for free.
“If I’ll stay indoor to write a song that reaches a mass audience and makes you a star, then I need a means to pay for my rent and put food on the table. Otherwise you’l have to seek another song-writter as I’ll have died of hunger from giving free services,” said Mr.Vee, whose latest song ‘Subira’ alongside Kenty of M.O.G has enjoyed quite some share of airplay.
On whether he only writes music for Gospel musicians, Mr. Vee put it clear that he’s not confined to Gospel.
“I’m yet to write for a secular musician, but if that chance comes by, I’ll grab it and make proper use of it. This is my calling, and if writing a song for a seccular musician would help unite a broken family somewhere, then so be it.”
Mr. Vee shot into the Kenyan music A-list after being featured by Zaidi Ya Mziki” in Fundi wa Mbao back in 2006.
He has maintained his relevance with hits such as ‘Heartbreaker’ (alongside M.O.G), Soldier and Just A Way ( with the late Kaberere)
