Things are getting interesting over at the offices of Kenya’s CMOs.
CMOs is the acronym given to collective management organizations and in this regard, we are talking about MCSK,Kenya Association of Music Producers (KAMP) and Performers Rights Society of Kenya (PRiSK), Music Publishers Association of Kenya (MPAKE) and Music Copyright Society of Kenya (MCSK).
The office of the Inspector general of the national police service has issued an order rescinding the police protection and escort that Kenyan CMOs such as MCSK enjoy when they are going to collect royalties for the music Kenyan artistes earn.
This is interesting news because celebrity artistes such as Khaligraph Jones had told MCSK guys shouldnae collect any royalties on his behalf seeing as they simply send through 2K!
Niliwaambia hii kitu ni Pole pole tu, Sasa Juu hakuna protection Ya polisi naona watu wakipata tabu, hakuna Kushikwa ovyo ovyo sasa na wakizidi, mnawaletea mbogi wanafkuzwa na vibare, Wezi hao.., The People Shall Be respected
We at Kiss FM wait to see what will happen with the new developments.
