Kenyan musicians are breathing fire after Music Copyright Society of Kenya (MCSK), paid them a ‘whooping’ Ksh 2,530 as accumulated royalties for a whole year.
Most of the disgruntled musicians such as Khaligraph Jones, Timmy Tdat, King Kaka and Fena Gitu took to social media to air out their frustrations after receiving the shocker.
Rapper Khaligraph Jones was the first to blow the whistle after receiving the ‘peanuts’.
Imagine top-notch artistes such as King Kaka and Khaligraph Jones receiving 2,530 shillings! MCSK is just another scam in Kenya with its officials reaping from the sweat of our very own musicians.
This is actually not the first time MCSK is stealing from artists. A few years back, there was also a storm after the crooked body paid Elani, a group of three musicians a total of 31,000 shillings as a year’s royalty. This could possibly be one of the reasons that might have caused the ‘premature’ death of the band.
