Mafia system! How Daddy Owen and Ian Mbugua forced Nonini to resign from his powerful position at PRISK

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.

Nameless abstained from the vote to continue with the while illegal collection of royalties while Samuel Kuria (SK Blue) was absent during the vote.
