Why Artists charge SO MUCH

If you ask yourself why ARTISTS (Djs, Dancers, Singers, Actors, Musicians or other performers) charge "SO MUCH" for performances... ???

Here is one answer for you - Because They don't get paid vacation, they don't get paid sick leave, they don't get bonuses for outstanding performances nor for Christmas. They don't have insurance plans nor do they qualify for unemployment and no retirement plan either.

Because they sacrifice their family on special days so that they can bring happiness to others. Illness or personal affairs are no excuses for a bad SHOW.

Next time you ask, remember that ARTISTS are ARTISTS because of the love of dance, music & art, but unfortunately that LOVE doesn't pay DEBTS nor BILLS.

  1. That's an interesting take on the matter. What do you think of people who say that successful musicians today in the West tend to lead overly materialistic lives?

    And this is not as related to the post, but I find it curious that your blog's title suggests that you are a Tuareg yet in other posts you state that you are Nigerian. Are you a Tuareg or Nigerian or are there Tuareg Nigerians?
