MCSK responds to artistes outcry over peanut royalties. The agency was accused of squandering the money they collect on behalf of Kenyan artistes.

Where it all started!

On 14th August, Kenyan artistes led by the self-proclaimed OG  Papa Jones  furiously reacted over what they termed as peanut royalties from Music Copyright Society of Kenya (MSCK)

Khaligraph Jones sparked social media after he shared a screenshot of the Mpesa transaction from MCSK indicating that he had received Sh. 2,530

His post evoked other artistes such as Willy Paul, King Kaka, Fena,  Gidi, Stevo Simple Boy, Ringtone Apoko and many others who also shared screenshots of what they had received from the agency.

They threated to storm MCSK offices and demand their legitimate pay if the society will not remit all their earnings.

The response from MSCK did not satisfy Kenyans as they came out demanding that artistes must be paid;

If the artist is supposed to update you,then what’s your job?You are are supposed to either write a letter or send a text message. It’s called beurocracy.


Oooh please do they need to update you… How do you even have the guts of paying someone like khaligraph 2500 na unatuma tu na kiburi, common i mean iyo pesa inatosha nn surely. 🙄🙄🙄
