Content creators and Copyright cases
In the past, content creators have often found themselves in legal trouble for using other artists' songs without obtaining their consent.
A recent case involved rapper Nonini and Brian Mutinda. Nonini sued Mutinda for using his song without permission, and after the matter went to court, Mutinda was ordered to pay the rapper Sh1 million as a settlement.
Additionally, in August 2022, Mutinda faced another accusation for using a song by Wakadinali in his work.
However, they were unable to resolve the matter outside of court, and it is currently pending further legal action.
