Maina Kageni interviewed Nameless and King Kaka about the issue of MCSK paying Kenyan musicians peanuts for all the work that they do.
He spoke to the host and revealed that he used the 2.5K he received to pay for a jet ski.
He also revealed that the situation was very frustrating for him noting that,
The solution is at the board level and that level of leadership is very important. I feel the leadership is lacking. People are refusing to work together. We need to be real as artistes and be honest. We need technocrats and only 3 musicians on the board. So that we get people who have the business savvy to get control of the situation.
Maina asked if it was fair that established musicians were being paid the same amount as artistes no one knew about.
We are supposed to be paid for the rotation but things aren’t like that. They are many artistes who will not be earning if they were paid just for the play that their music receives.
Nameless finished off by saying that he did not see the terrible situation changing anytime soon. Maina also spoke with the musician mirroring Nameless’ sentiment.
He told Maina,
We are been taken for a ride. Writing music is not easy and shooting music videos is very expensive. I feel that they are not transparent. There is no way that these guys only collected Ksh 37 million.
Maina interviewed Nameless and King Kaka about the issue of MCSK paying Kenyan musicians peanuts for all the work that they do.
King Kaka added that he was disappointed that the organisation’s administrative costs were estimated at between 60-70 % of what they collected!
He said the solution could come after they seat down with MCSK. Adding that, they could even disband the current MCSK and start another one of their own.
