Khaligraph Johns has declared to spark a heated conversation across various social media platforms against MCSK actions of paying the musician a sum of Ksh 2,530 for two years work.
A screenshot of the Kenyan rapper-shared message, Khaligraph Jones, triggered a conversation on Wednesday morning.
The M-Pesa message indicates a quantity sent by the Kenya Music Copyright Society (MCSK) to the award-winning hip hop artist.
“On 13/8/19 at 7:32 pm you received Ksh 2,530 plus the MCSK withdrawal fee,” read an excerpt from the email.
Khaligraph blasted stating that the payments are peanuts.
“Msijaribu kunitumia izi peanuts tena. I actually gave permission to pirate my music, don’t collect cash anymore on my behalf,” he repeated through his Instagram page.
On behalf of writers, musicians, arrangers and publishers of musical works, MCSK is responsible for collecting royalties.

King Kaka, the genius behind Dundaiing and countless other top songs, also received the same amount as Khaligraph, going on to Twitter to question MCSK’s dealings.
