It’s been roughly a week since former Grandpa Records signee Pizo Dizo took to social media to protest her music pay.
Born Doreen Awinja, the rapper in a Facebook post on September 13 said she was tired of people thinking she makes a fortune out of music while in reality, she gets nothing.
I am so sick and tired of this s***, people been thinking I made a lot of money through music. Well here is the truth, you live a better life than me, I can’t even afford for my son, but who cares anyway? Am not going to pretend here on social media but the truth is am so f****** depressed,” she wrote.
In an exclusive interview with SDE, Pizo Dizo affirmed that because of financial constraints, she fell into depression and even contemplated suicide
From the day I left Grandpa Records till now, my music has been receiving airplay but I haven’t made any money at all. Music is my life. People were assuming that Pizo lives a good life while I’m struggling.
“I’ve never spoken to anyone about what I am going through and it got to a point it started affecting me adversely, to the point I felt like I’m losing it. I don’t trust anyone enough to share with them since I feel they would instead mock me.
“It got to a point where I started talking to myself. I saw it was getting out of hand so I decided to post on Facebook,” she said
When asked whether she had sought professional help for depression Pizo responded by saying, “No I haven’t because as I said, there’s nobody I trust.
“I had a friend whom I tried sharing my struggles with but he ended up betraying me. I shut out everyone and remained in my own world.”
Parental duty, no job in sight
After mentioning she was unable to take care of her child, Pizo explained that she has been doing shows but she’s paid ‘peanuts’ which could not sustain her family.
“My son is constantly in and out of school, coupled with rent arrears, I just cannot manage to cater for my needs.”
The rapper also revealed she has tried her best to look for a job to no avail because she is not qualified.
Message to other artists
According to the Mundu Khumundu hitmaker, a number of artists are suffering but are silent since they want to protect their reputation.
“There are many musicians in the industry going through similar tribulations but they are afraid of sharing. Some of them have even quit music altogether.

A woman dubbed the ‘world’s oldest mum’ is in hospital alongside her husband after he suffered a heart attack a week after she gave birth to twins.
The 74-year-old Erramatti Mangayamma underwent a caesarean section after waiting nearly 60 years for children.
The couple married in 1962 and had been childless for 57 years.
Dr Sanakayyala Umashankar, director of Ahalya Hospital in Kothapet, said the surgery went “smoothly, both mother and infants are healthy and have no complications whatsoever.
“However, the mother has been taken to the intensive care unit to come out of the stress she had undergone for the last few hours.
“It’s another world record.”
Hours after their birth, thrilled dad Raja Rao hailed their arrival, saying: “Due to the grace of God and doctors, I am the proud father of two baby girls.
“We are the happiest couple on earth today.”
However, The Times reports he collapsed one day later and was taken to the Ahalya Nursing Home’s intensive care unit in Guntur, Andhra Pradesh.
The couple has remained in intensive care since their babies, who were conceived by in vitro fertilisation (IVF), were born on September 5.
The home has not revealed why the new mum remains in intensive care, and it has not given an update on Raja Rao’s condition.
The Hindustan Times says that because Mangayamma had no chance of producing eggs, as she had already gone through menopause 25 years ago, an egg was used from another donor, and fertilised with her husband’s sperm.
Dr Umashankar said: “Luckily she conceived in the first cycle itself, and she was found to be pregnant this January.”
He added that her condition had been “constantly monitored” during her pregnancy, including by cardiologists, gynaecologists and a nutritionist.
The doctor said: “Since it is very difficult for her to have normal delivery in view of her age, we had to perform a caesarean operation.”
Mangayamma’s brother, Devalla Raju, said the babies’ relatives are “all here for them, no matter what”.
She is three years older than another septuagenarian who gave birth in India after undergoing IVF treatment.
