Renowned Music Copyright Society of Kenya (MCSK) CEO Ezekiel Mutua has been dealt a blow as popular gikuyu benga popularly known as Florence Wangari Wa Kabera issues a threat to President Ruto Against his MCSk ministry.
Speaking during an exclusive interview on a local tv station, the sultry-voiced singer claimed that MCSK existence is not instrumental to Kenyan artists and should be disbanded for the windfall of hardworking artists.
Defending her sentiments, Florence Wangari alleged that MCSK has been taking advantage of Kenyan artists and the head of state should disband it for allegedly demanding higher rates to the chagrin of musicians. Adding that the ministry usually fails to pay musicians their royalties.
"This MCSK is not for us and for the past two years, it has not paid us royalties. It is being reported in the field harassing music users as it demands rates but the collections end up being loot for the few in it," she said.
Florence further argued that if MCSK is banned, Kenyan artists will enjoy a lifetime opportunity as it would have paved way for them to maximize their benefits.
Touching on music competition, Florence revealed her deep resentment on the matter claiming that Gikuyu artists have developed a habit of crowning themselves as kingpins without fans approval.
Following this, she has urged her fellow artists to start a tournament to end this gross norm and let the fans determine who are the real kings and queens of mugithi.
