When Julie Gichuru paid H_art the Band Sh50,000 for one song
H_art the Band warmed their way into Kenyans’ hearts with their first hit song Uliza Kiatu, but before they started landing gigs and concerts, they had caught Julie Gichuru’s attention.
In an Instagram post, the band reveals that in 2013 Julie invited them to perform at their first ever event.
“After stepping offstage, she paid us a whopping Sh50,000 in cash; we couldn’t believe it. What, for just one song? Here is the best part, we had never seen such an amount of money in our life, so we called the host aside and requested her to call us a taxi. Psst! we were rich now. Imagine, instead of calling a taxi, she called her driver and we were driven to town in a Range Rover,” they wrote.
They ended the post by saying “Shoekran sana @juliegichuru for showing us that every dream is valid #JahBless”
