Kenyan Hip Hop heavyweight Khaligraph Jones is officially an angry man!
This comes after the Music Copyright Society of Kenya (MCSK) – the body tasked with collecting royalty on behalf of authors, composers, arrangers and publishers of musical works – allegedly sent him Ksh.2530 on Tuesday evening.
Taking to Instagram, the ‘Leave me alone’ hitmaker threatened to storm the MCSK offices, further warning them from ever sending him such “peanuts” again.
Khaligraph further pulled the plug on MCSK collecting any royalties on his behalf, adding that the body should not arrest anybody found playing his music as he has officially “given authorization for my music to be pirated.”

MCSK Siku Moja Tutakuja Kuwavuruga uko Mbaya Sana, Msijaribu kunitumia izi peanuts tena, Infact I have given Authorization for my Music to be pirated, Don’t collect money on my Bahalf anymore, Nisiskie mmeshika mtu akicheza Wimbo zangu kwa street, msinitumie izo peanuts zenu tena, The OG shall be respected #mrinternational
The rant by Khaligraph comes a week after fellow musicians Wangechi and Nikita Kering took to Twitter to complain that they had been sent Ksh.4076 by the Performers Rights Society of Kenya (PRISK); a body tasked with collecting royalty on behalf of performing artists (musicians and actors.)
