Akothee couldn’t stop grumbling after Music Copyright Society of Kenya (MCSK) wrote her a cheque of Kes 56,000; an amount that can’t even pay the monthly salary of her photographer.
Kenyan musicians have for years complained about receiving peanut pay as royalties from MSCK. Akothee revealed that the last cheque she got from the music regulatory body was in October 2016.
She said the cheque was of little worth to her since the amount she was paid as royalties was so little that it couldn’t even pay her own photographer.
Akothee stated that the 56,000 she was paid by MSCK was the monthly salary for only two of her domestic workers. In simpler term Akothee pays her domestic servants Kes 28,000 a month.
“Dont ask me about music right now , the last cheque I recieved from MCSK was 56,000 in October last year , this is salary for only 2 of my domestic employees per month, this cant even pay my photographer 😂😂 so leave me alone , listen to the ones on yuotube , like baby daddy link on my bio & the rest , leave music for now will collect it next month 😂😂😂😂 awards are coming give me what you think I deserve,” Akothee grumbled.
