Khaligraph Jones hits back at MCSK after Audit Report revealed theft of Royalties
Rapper Khaligraph Jones has hit back at Music Copyright Society of Kenya (MCSK) after an audit report by KECOBO revealed theft of artist’s royalties.
In a post shared on Instagram, Khaligraph said the report is not news since artists having been crying foul for ages now.
“The Audit was Unnecessary, We have been Saying this from The beginning, The Kenyan Entertainment industry keeps on Suffering, DJs ,Artists, Event Organizers, Bouncers, Dancers Waiters, Club Owners, Restaurants etc” he said
According to a statement released by KECOBO Chairman Mr Mutuma Mathiu on September 8, the rot at MCSK includes diversion of royalties, poor corporate governance and separation of roles, non-existence of critical policy documents and breach of existent policies in human resource and finance.
“The non-compliance exposes the three societies to serious risk of misappropriation of funds, civil and criminal liability and loss of income from penalties and sanctions,” the report read in part
Since the release of the report, artists are now demanding for justice.
Rapper Nonini expressed his anger saying justice should be taken against the responsible parties.
“Finally this has been a long time coming. We now demand action to be taken after the audit report and persons to be held responsible for any rot that has occurred in the CMOs.” He said
