One of Namibia’s most recognised dancers, Stanley Mareka has come out to say that dancers in Namibia still earn peanuts for their art which is unfair.

Mareka who spoke to Vibe over the weekend said dancers are struggling to make ends meet, and that they get paid as little as N$150 per gig.

“Some clients really do take advantage of the terms and conditions. Clients would negotiate with a dancer to dance for less than N$150 for 10 minutes which is not fair," Mareka argued.
