I WAS PAID $100 FOR “BHACHURA” VIDEO | The brains behind the popular Bhachura video has revealed that he was paid less than $100 for his services.
But Video director Vusa Hlatshwayo, known as Vusa Blaqs, said he was happy shooting ExQ and Ammara video’s ‘‘Bhachura’’ on less than $100.“The ‘Bhachura’ video cost about $1 200 but that is not to say that is how much I got. I invested all the money back into the project. I got less than $100. My base charge is $1 000.
I can’t say artistes are undermining film directors, on this one was my choice.“Some artistes though do undermine directors and I usually hold discussions prior to the deal and reading their minds so they understand the value of their money. As for how much I got on ‘What you want’ video, I can’t disclose,” he said.
Blaqs said is inspired by US rapper Kanye West because of his creative mind and intellect.
“My creative role model and benchmark is Kanye West. According to him, he sees music not hear it. To me every song I listen to, I am already creating visuals in my head.
