Rehema Lugose songs end 2023 with positive note. Top musician Rehema Lugose shine at the Music Copyright Society of Kenya (MCSK) event that was presided over by first Lady Mama Rachel Ruto.

 After abandoning the antiquated flat fee distribution mechanism, the Music Copyright Society of Kenya (MCSK) has distributed Sh20 million in royalties to its members.

During his speech, CEO Ezekiel Mutua announced a substantial increase for MCSK members, with the top musician earning Sh757,092 and the lowest receiving at least Sh5,000. This sum represents the most recent distribution to more than 16,000 artists from the Collective Management Organisation (CMO).

"To make sure that artists get the respect and good living they deserve, the government has backed music rates with additional levies, which have led to a large rise. The installation of new tariffs represents a key milestone," according to Mutua, who sees music as an ecosystem where a carefully designed song draws large views.

In order to help creators and promote artists' interests, MCSK has successfully negotiated higher payment rates with platforms like YouTube and Google, among others.

"A payment rate of 1.7% was in place when I joined MCSK, but after some strategic work, it has risen to 16.5%, which is higher than the US rate.

"Successful partnerships with other major social media sites, such as YouTube and TikTok, have contributed to this accomplishment. Thanks to these initiatives, these platforms now compensate Kenyan artists more fairly according to the number of people who listen to their music and the influence it has on the world," according to Mutua.

"Our musicians deserve more, and we hope they'll be well-off when they retire. This substantial financial acknowledgment highlights the increased wealth sweeping the music business, encouraging a fairer environment for various talents to flourish.

Mutua spoke about how the many success stories included in this award show a larger effort to recognise and reward artists from all walks of life and all kinds of genres.

Emphasising the significance of current data for equitable distribution, he continued by criticising sceptics who had written off the project as a hoax.

Mutua slammed the glorifying of those she called "thieves" and pushed for the acknowledgment of artists who work tirelessly.

At a press conference held on May 2, Music Copyright Society of Kenya (MCSK) CEO Ezekiel Mutua said that the most lucrative artist had received Sh330,000 from the Collective Management Organisation's (CMO) most recent royalty distribution.

In accordance with the public notification published on February 27, MCSK awarded royalties to more than 16,000 members two weeks ago.

"The lowest earner was six hundred and thirty-seven," Mutua said, adding that the top earner earned three hundred and thirty thousand.
