Where are the royalties in Kenya?

Nairobi, 24 February 2016 - Musicians and artists in Kenya are demanding more transparency and accountability from the country’s collecting society MCSK. The society has been accused of corruption and misappropriation of royalties. 
The situation piqued only last month when afro-fusion music group Elani confronted the society over underpaid royalties, which meant MCSK had to revise the payment.
 
Many young Kenyan musicians are using modern technology to launch a career in music. But many of them say that MCSK is undercutting them, instead of protecting and enhancing their earnings.
