• Kabi said the least they can work with is 30 brands in a month
Content creator Kabi Wa Jesus is currently working with over 100 brands.
The popular influencer told Vincent Mboya some of the brands now pay him millions, unlike before.
"We lifted the humble brands and right now they can pay us well. The only big brand we worked with is Bonfire," he said.
"In a month, the least we can work with is 30 brands, but in peak season, there are even more."
A few months ago, comedian Flaqo said he only takes two highly paying gigs per year and lets his fans enjoy his other content just for laughs.
"I don't have to get many advertisements within a year to sustain myself since I have perfected my craft," he told Word Is in a phone interview. "I just need like two major brand adverts since my content is already solidified."
Flaqo said most creators take many gigs that in the end dilute their craft.
"It's a point I don't want to reach," he said.
"The gigs I take pay the worth of the work. I would rather do entertainment and earn directly from YouTube and Facebook because it still pays well."
Kabi is among the most followed celebrities on social media. His family YouTube channel has over 550k subscribers.
Kabi also explained why he postponed his political ambitions.
"I wanted to vie but I was advised by older people not to rush. They gave me a strategy and that is what we are working on," he said.
"I look at politics from a leadership perspective. I want to influence decisions and legislation. I want to bring the Godly aspect into the political world."
