Sauti Sol & Raila Issue Take Fresh Twists As Music Copyright CEO Now Backs Odinga

The political climate in the country is beginning to change.The naming of the running mates are now likely to see heated campaigns across the country.Martha Karua and Rigathi Gachagua have to work extra hard to bring votes from Mount Kenya to their alliances.They will now have to outsmart one another in the region during campaigns.However,Martha Karua has picked the advantage of being a woman.This is likely to give her further advantage as far as getting the women's votes are concerned.

On Monday,Raila Odinga officially announced Martha Karua as his running mate just a day after Ruto unveiling Rigathi Gachagua.During the unveiling of Karua,Sauti sol's song 'Extravaganza' was played during the celebration.This rattled Sauti sol group that vowed to take legal action against Azimio team.Yesterday,Odinga said that they used the song because they love Sauti sol.

Luckily,Raila Odinga has received the backings of Music Copyright Society of Kenya CEO Dr Ezekiel Mutua.Mutua says that Raila had the rights to use Sauti Sol's music.What next for the team that has vowed to take legal action even despite Odinga's yesterday's positive reply?
