Size 8 is VERY grateful to the late Fidel Odinga who whole-heartedly gave her cash that she desperately needed to shoot her viral video, Fire.
2011 was the most difficult year in Size 8â€™s music career. She was dead broke and on the verge of throwing her music career in the garbage bin. This was after her fall out with Calif record.
Size 8 revealed she had a new song but she had no cash to record it. She contacted Steve Jomino (CEO of Jomino Records) to record the audio to her song. Jomino demanded 10,000 for the audio which Size 8 didnâ€™t have. Jomino then decided to pay half of the cost for her and told her to raise the other half.
Size 8 was completely penniless and couldnâ€™t even afford to raise the other half. Help came in for her inform of Steve Muendo who called her to inquire about rumors that were circulating around she had quit music. She told Muendo she didnâ€™t have any cash to record a song and that was why she was opting out of music.
Steve Muendo surprisingly decided to give her the 5,000 which Size 8 asked him to send to Steve Jomino to record the audio with. â€œFireâ€ eventually was recorded and started playing on the radio where it received enormous air play.
Size 8 further disclosed Steve Jomino connected her with SK Blue (founder Sakata Media) who was to shoot the video. SK initially demanded 120,000 for the video but upon hearing Size 8 was a very poor girl from Eastlands, he reduced the price to 70,000.
With zero cash in her pockets, it was Steve Jomino who was her savior again; Steve paid 25,000 for her and asked her to raise the remaining 45,000. Raising the money was like going to the moon for Size 8; she, a mere pauper, had no way to raise the cash.
Upon hearing the song on radio, Fidel Odinga called Kiss FMâ€™s Shaffie Weru to ask for its video. Shaffie then called Size 8 to inquire on the video and she (Size 8) explained why she couldnâ€™t shoot the video. Size 8 was fortunate again as Shaffie connected her with Fidel who was willing to cater for the remaining 45,000 needed to shoot the video.
Fidel sent Size 8 the cash immediately after she contacted her paving the way for the video shoot of â€œFireâ€ which surprisingly became a mega hit in the country.
â€œFidel had a VERY clean heart, all those people who helped me didnâ€™t have any other intentions,â€ Size 8 emphasized.
It was from the success of â€œFireâ€ that Size 8 raised enough money to cater for all expenses for her next song â€œVidongeâ€.
â€œI have been built by society thatâ€™s why I donâ€™t have prideâ€ Size 8 disclosed.
