International artistes reap big from royalties paid by MCSK

It was a sad day for Kenyan artistes when MCSK director Maurice Okoth revealed that 80% of all royalties was awarded to international musicians.

The director urged the local media to air more of Kenyan music than international one so that our own could benefit more as there is much local talent in the music industry.

Word has is that the biggest local artistes who benefited from the royalties are Fadhili Williams, Safari Sound Band, Wyre, MOG, Abbas Kubaff, Daddy Owen, Betty Bayo and Ukoo Flani Mau Mau.

We hope with this kind of rewarding, most artistes will be motivated to produce quality staff that will impress the people.
