Nonini Terminates Membership With MCSK (Statement)

Legendary musician Nonini has expressed his disenchantment with the Music Copyright Society of Kenya and gone a notch higher by terminating his membership with them. The musician made the decision upon insinuating that he’s already had enough of MCSK.

MCSK is a platform where artists get part of their revenue from through the ring back tunes.- but they’ve been on the spotlight for underpaying Kenyan artists.

Nonini’s statement, signed by recently appointed MCSK CEO Ezekiel Mutua, confirmed that he’s no longer a member from 18th May.

The musician continued to state his main reason of making the move-terming MCSK as a deal-breaker that won’t change nor work.

”Insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results. Moving on to something that actually works. ???? #Mgenge2ru

Other artists like Willy Paul, Khaligraph Jones, Sauti Sol have complained about MCSK paying them peanuts as royalties. Some of them have received as little as Ksh 2500.

This is a probable reason why some like Nonini have opted to ride solo and focus on other things. Will we witness more artists pulling out of the institution?
