There was a time girls in music videos would vixen for free. Things have changed and nowadays video vixens are earning huge cash for doing what they love.
Professional video vixens are paid a minimum of sh20,000 and those who aren’t that established get paid around 5k depending on the artist behind the project.
Currently Becky_vixen_254 is among the top video vixens in Kenya. You can recognize her from her signature dreadlock look. She is making a name for herself in the video vixen industry. She does more than just shaking her ass. She does choreography and creative acting.
She’s worked with King Kaka, Ali Kiba, Kristoff, DJ Shiti, Ochungulo Family, Timmy T Dat, Arrow Bwoy and much more.
You know it’s a banger when Becky is in the video.
We had a chit chat with her and here is her interview.
How did you get into this industry? It seems like a tough industry to shine in.
Let me say a friend of mine (director) made this happen after asking me to get on set during a video shoot (zikki ft timmy t dat). After the video was out I went ahead and posted some part of it… after that some artists started hitting my inbox (FB) for me to appear in their music videos
