King Kaka, Fena Gitu and Khaligraph Jones. Hilarious reactions as Kenyan musicians receive Sh2500 from MCSK

Kenyans reacted hilariously after it emerged that the Music Copyright Society of Kenya (MCSK) is paying musicians peanuts (Sh2500) in the name of their accumulated royalties.

On Tuesday, a number of musicians took to social media to share with their fans the amount of Money they had received from MCSK, expressing displeasure.

Rapper Khaligrah Jones was among celebrities who called out MCSK, saying;

“MCSK Siku Moja Tutakuja Kuwavuruga uko Mbaya Sana, Msijaribu kunitumia izi peanuts tena, Infact I have given Authorization for my Music to be pirated, Don’t collect money on my Behalf anymore, Nisiskie mmeshika mtu akicheza Wimbo zangu kwa street, msinitumie izo peanuts zenu tena, The OG shall be respected #mrinternational”.

Don't collect my money again

He further cautioned MCSK not to collect any royalties on his behalf or arrest anybody found playing his music as he has given authorization for his music to be pirated.

His sentiments were echoed by the likes of King Kaka, Timmy Tdat, Wangechi, Fena Gitu, Gidi Ogidi, and Nikita Kering among others.

The Music Copyright Society of Kenya (MCSK) is the body tasked to collect royalties on behalf of musicians, authors, composers, arrangers and publishers of musical works.
