The Kenya Association of Music Producers (KAMP) has been awarded a full-year collective management license by the Kenya Copyright Board (KECOBO), allowing the organization to collect and distribute royalties on behalf of music producers in Kenya.

This milestone follows KAMP’s successful completion of a forensic audit and royalty distribution for the period under review, as well as meeting other necessary conditions set by KECOBO.

KAMP’s Chairperson, Ms Faith Kithele, expressed her joy at the news, stating that it was a significant achievement for the organization and the entire music industry in Kenya. “This full-year collective management license is a game-changer for us. It provides stability and certainty for our operations, which will allow us to better serve our members and ensure that they receive their rightful royalties,” said Ms. Kithele.

With the full-year license, KAMP is now able to enter into licensing agreements with various music users, including radio and television stations, bars, and restaurants. The license also strengthens KAMP’s ability to fight piracy and protect the rights of music producers in Kenya.

The Executive Director of KECOBO, Mr. Edward Sigei, congratulated KAMP on their achievement and urged them to continue operating within the law while maintaining high standards in their operations.

“KAMP has demonstrated its commitment to transparency and accountability in managing the royalties of music producers. This full-year license is a testament to their hard work and dedication, and we encourage them to continue upholding the same standards,” said Mr. Sigei.

The full-year collective management license for KAMP is not only a significant milestone for the organization but also a positive development for the entire music industry in Kenya. It offers a stable environment for the collection and distribution of royalties, which is crucial in promoting creativity, innovation, and growth in the music sector.
