History As Angela Ndambuki Becomes First Female KAMP Chairperson

Angela Ndambuki has made history by becoming the first female chairperson of the Kenya Association of Music Producers (KAMP).

KAMP is the body that represents the rights and interests of producers of sound recordings whose membership comprises record labels.

In a statement on social media, the body confirmed the appointment saying that the move officially made them the leading CMO( collective management organization) in Kenya with the highest number of females on the board.

“Ms Angela Ndambuki has been elected as the first female chairperson of the Kenya Association of Music Producers (KAMP), the body representing the rights and interests of producers of sound recordings whose membership comprises record labels,” KAMP posted.

“KAMP now becomes the only collective management organisation (CMO) board that has the highest representation of women that commands the majority number of four out of seven board members.”

This is the first time that a Collective Management Organization (CMO) board has the highest representation of women that commands the majority number of four out of the seven board members.

Angela, who started out as a singer, promised to defend artists following the appointment.

“I will engage and work with my colleagues to defend our members’ rights and reject any attempts to undermine the exercise of such rights. Particularly, the currently proposed miscellaneous amendments to the current Copyright Act stand inimical to the growth of the producer collective management activities in the country,” she said.

The seasoned lawyer also doubles up as the Regional Director Sub Saharan Africa at the International Federation of the Phonographic Industry (IFPI).
