Nonini resigned as the board chairman of Performers Rights Society of Kenya (PRISK) on August 8th 2018. The Genge rapper accused some board members of sabotaging his work as the chairman.
In his resignation letter, Nonini says PRISK has been excluding other mandated bodies in collecting royalties jointly as stipulated in the law.
Kenya Copyright Board (KECOBO) stipulates that PRISK should jointly collect royalties together with Kenya Association of Music Producers (KAMP) and Music Publishers Association of Kenya (MPAKE).
But PRISK and KAMP have excluded MPAKE in the the collection of royalties, Nonini decided to resign after he failed to compel PRISK and KAMP to follow the law and include MPAKE in collection of royalties.
4 board members against Nonini
Apparently, four out of six directors at PRISK’s board of directors voted to continue with KAMP-PRISK collections excluding MPAKE.
The four who voted to continue with the illegal collection of royalties include Daddy Owen, Ian Mbugua, Irene Kariuki and Beatrice Achieng.
Nameless abstained from the vote to continue with the while illegal collection of royalties while Samuel Kuria (SK Blue) was absent during the vote.
