All About The Free Recording Studio, Art Centre From KBL And Senator Sifuna

A groundbreaking initiative is set to empower underprivileged emerging artists in Kenya by providing them with the opportunity to hit the studio and record their music without any financial barriers.

The upcoming construction of a public recording studio and an arts center in Nairobi is poised to change the landscape for these unsigned talents who often struggle to break into the music industry due to limited resources.

This ambitious project has been spearheaded by Nairobi Senator Edwin Sifuna, who has long championed the cause of budding artists facing economic hardships.

In a significant development, Senator Sifuna recently formalized a partnership with Kenya Breweries Limited (KBL) to support the establishment of this transformative center.

“We are currently in the process of identifying a suitable location, preferably within Eastlands, a vibrant hub of artistic expression,” Senator Sifuna announced, fulfilling a promise made during his campaign. He added, “Under the memorandum of understanding, KBL will finance this project, and its management will be overseen by a board jointly established by my office and KBL.”

Senator Sifuna described this forthcoming recording studio and arts center as a sanctuary for artists, likening it to the renowned Pumwani Maternity Hospital—a place where raw talent can be nurtured and brought to life.

While commending this groundbreaking initiative, comedian Eric Omondi challenged Senator Sifuna to ensure that the studio remains easily accessible to the public without any unnecessary restrictions.

Omondi emphasized the importance of transparency, stating, “Measures must be in place to guarantee that artists are not denied entry. Too often, politicians make promises they do not fulfill. When they finally do, they sometimes backtrack on their commitment to providing free services, leaving the public to face security personnel demanding payment at the gates.”

This public recording studio initiative bears resemblance to a previous effort led by former Nyandarua Governor Francis Kimemia, which allowed artists in Nyandarua County to record their music free of charge.
