  1. who exactly get paid by mcsk nawadays we are all musicians and i have a complain, now and then we give you our music you get them wherever but how can we also monitor our songs comeup with an application we can all view ourself getting played and getting paid. tired 7 years of stragle but you take money from hotels, media matatus and corporate events. does your office collect money to just pay your staff and rent. how about the workers the bosses the creators of music skiza pays 75 sent who can talk on our behalf? if you are all satisfied then we choose other people to take charge we might be quiet but we are paining all this time change will come one day for music. you said my music has to play it does yes but also the industry is controlled by few who just push thier staff along kindly open our own radio, tv and make shows for our musicians and broadcast them.
