Is the MCSK stealing from Kenyan musicians?

14 January 2016, 12:49 Eugene Odanga

Nairobi - The Music Copyright Society of Kenya MCSK, the body that collects revenue on behalf of artists is under fire once again for irregularities in their disbursement process.

Elani, who were in 2014 one of the fastest growing music groups in Africa, are at the forefront of this attack on the body, claiming that MCSK is not paying artists what is due to them.

In a video they posted on YouTube, the group express their concern over the lack of transparency at the organization, calling on their fellow artists to rise up and fight for what is theirs.

The video highlights the plight of the group, who fell into debt at the end of 2014, causing them to go almost completely underground. Having barely managed to pay their debt, they then received a cheque from MCSK for KES 31,000, which was the sum total of all the airplay that they had gotten through 2014, despite having released an album that had done quite well.

They go on to explain how they knocked down the doors at MCSK demanding logs for their airplay and transparency, only to be given long stories and inaccurate logs. They were apparently later called by the same body and offered KES 300,000 as compensation, after less than 5 days of complaining, raising questions on the kind of misappropriation that might be happening in the organization.

Listen to their story here.
