Prominent Kamba King of Benga Music and Iconic Ken Wamaria Wangunze has written an emotional letter to the President Uhuru Kenyatta over artistes millions.
President Uhuru last month announced that Artists will be compensated for the work they do during this COVID 19 pandemic.
“Dear Mr. President Uhuru”
Some Musicians have been calling me inquiring why the Money you promised them hasn’t been received by any of the countrywide, And as a senior artist, I called MCSK who confessed that there is a lot of confusion and external interests on that money.
This is my advice, Mr. President Uhuru! Tell the relevant minister to release this money through the established CMO’s
All musicians, artists, and actors who have not joined these 3 CMO’s should be sorted through KECOBO(Kenya Copyright Board)
It’s as simple as that.
Yours Kennedy Wambua Ngunze
AKA Ken Samaria.
