Social media was left shook after DJ Tira announced his collaboration prices has gone up, which included his famous Chikichikichaaaaaa phrase, which would now set a musician back R50k!
Everything is going up- VAT is now 15%, petrol is well over R15 a litre- so, DJ Tira meant it would only be fair if his tariffs also go up.
"For all artists/ DJs who wants Chikichikichaaaaaa on their songs.... the price has gone up! R50k. Verse is R70k. Chorus is R100k. Faka imali uzobona! Uzongithola eAfro!", he wrote on Twitter on Thursday.
DJ Tira then explained why his prices were so high. According to record producer, an average song he composes makes a lot of money, adding he does not make average songs, only hits.
And, according to him, his prices are really affordable.
However, despite DJ Tira's explanations of his prices, tweeps believed he lost his bearings (pun intended) and they held nothing back when they told him exactly what they thought of it.
When tweeps saw how much he wants for just saying one word, they started see business opportunities.
One tweep pointed out if DJ Tira ask R50 000 for Chikichikichaaaaaa, how much does DJ Khalid ask for 'another one'?
