He said the contract does not permit him to discuss the terms of his payment but the money he got from the deal can sustain him for the next 7 years.
He went on to brag that the deal was so lucrative that he can stay without working till 2029.
“Kulingana na mkataba sikuruhusiwa kutaja mambo mbili tatu kuhusu mshahara, lakini naeza sema nilipona kimaisha.

“For the first time nilitengeneza pesa ya content pure ambayo kimaisha yangu, ilinishtua” he added.
