Collective Management Organizations (CMOs) PRISK, KAMP & MCSK Sign A Joint Deal With Songa.

Following the joint licensing agreement by Performers Rights Society of Kenya (PRISK), Kenya Association of Music Producers (KAMP) and Music Copyright Society of Kenya (MSCK), the collective management organizations have signed a new deal with streaming app Songa.

This agreement will give Songa access to the music catalogues of the CMOs in order to enable their members’ art to feature in the music streaming application. Through this, artistes will be able to gain more from digital platforms. The popular Songa app is accessed by millions of Kenyans, therefore, it will enable the artists’ music to reach more people. This partnership will also have Songa work closely with the CMOs to support the Kenyan creative industry.

The three Collective Management Organisations were licensed by their regulator Kenya Copyright Board (KECOBO) to collect and distribute royalties on behalf of owners of Copyright and related rights for the year 2019 after meeting KECOBO’s requirements.

The Chairmen of the three societies, Mr. Anthony Karani (KAMP), Mr. Ephantus Wahome, (PRISK) & Mr. Japheth Kassanga (MCSK) who signed the deal yesterday, are very enthusiastic about this development as it will enable artistes earn more. This partnership will unlock more opportunities for artistes to exploit and gain from their art.
