Former Kenya Film Classification Board (KFCB) head Dr. Ezekiel Mutua has been appointed as the new Music Copyright Society of Kenya (MCSK) CEO. In a press release shared today, MCSK confirmed his installation stating that Dr. Ezekiel Mutua was hired after rigorous and competitive interviews.
In addition, MCSK further expressed their confidence in their new CEO by adding that Dr. Mutua’s great wealth of experience in leadership, media, communication, and opinion driving will add value to the organization.
Dr. Ezekiel Mutua was replaced as the KFCB CEO in August last year when the current CEO Christopher Wambua took over. He takes over the helm of MCSK from former CEO Milka Kulati.
Via his official Twitter handle, the former KFCB boss expressed his joy in the new job noting, “I have received with profound gratitude my appointment to the position of Chief Executive Officer of the Music Copyright Society of Kenya (MCSK).”
The outspoken CEO’s tweet received mixed reactions from various Kenyans, including a congratulatory message from his former employer:
MCSK collects and distributes royalties on behalf of publishers, authors, composers, and arrangers of musical works.
