Bien talked about the importance of every artist owning their intellectual property noting he also has someone who manages his split sheet for every collaboration.

“I do not even remember the last time I recorded a song and did not have split sheets. We have split sheets with the OG.

There was actually a day, he called me and told me, ”hey Bien, this song, Yes Bana, is a hit, and it has made lots of cash.

Khaligraph is the first artiste to call me and send me KSh 300k based on the split sheet between the two of us,” he said.

He further jokingly revealed that the gift was not sent via bank but through Mpesa.

“The OG is like those people who owe you money, and instead of paying it at once, they give you KSh 100 notes until they finish paying you, but he gave me that money,” he added.
