Nairobi - A few weeks back, a huge row emerged between the Music
Copyright Society of Kenya and local DJ’s after the organization claimed that
Dj’s had to pay a fee of KES 21,000 annually to play local music.
This demand by the
Copyright society sparked outrage across the music industry, DJ’s threatening
to stop playing local music in its entirety. Many artists have weighed in on

Nameless, one of Kenya’s music icons and a director at PRISK
(Performance Rights Society of Kenya), has finally broken the silence on the

“Miscommunication”. He assured his fans, friends and colleagues that they were
working tirelessly to ensure that everything goes back to normal.
