Kenya Copyright Board (KECOBO) has issued licenses to three collective management; Kenya Association of Music Producers (KAMP), Performers Rights Society of Kenya (PRISK) and Music Copyright Society of Kenya (MCSK).
MCSK, which was barred from collecting royalties two years ago, then shortly replaced by Music Publishers Association of Kenya till late last year, has officially been handed its operating license.
Its licence was revoked two years ago due to “transparency issues” and given to Music Publishers Association of Kenya.
“For us, it is not a situation of won’t pay, but rather of let us sit and agree on the tariffs and we will pay you. But again, when we pay, let the rightful beneficiary get the money,” said Lynnet Mwangi,the CEO.
Kecobo Executive Director Edward Sigei said MCSK had fulfilled certain requirements, one of them being restructuring its management before getting its licences back. MCSK will also be required to distribute at least 70 per cent of the monies it collects.
