A state of the art studio has been opened in Mombasa at a cost of Sh15million to nurture youth talent locally.
Mombasa businessman Suleiman Shahbal said in the next 10 years, the studio should be able to compete with the best in the region. This studio is not just for the present times or 10 months.
"I know many will say it is because of politics; but politics will end. I want Mombasa artistes, in the next 10 years, to have a stable bearing in music like Wasafi Records and improv we Kenyan music," said Shahbal.
While opening the studio on Saturday Shahbal said tourists would flock Mombasa if there was investment in film,music and cultural festivals each month.
"I want Mombasa artistes to have a chance to grow and showcase their tal- ents to the world. We have already set up the studio, now it is up to you all to utilise it," he said.
Through SS Media studios, artistes are now able to record their music, shoot professional videos and photos and have their music promoted on social media and all television stations and radios the country.
The studio is in a maisonette in Nyali,with an oceanic view. The studio hosts a spacious recording area with modern equipment, a swimming pool and garden for artistes to shoot videos in.
He urged youth to utilise the opportunity to launch their music careers.
"Mombasa artistes have for years complained of lack of good studios, and places to nurture and showcase their talents. So now we have brought them a state of the art studio," said Shabal.
