Kenya’s Nyashinski Mocks Fellow Artiste After High Rating


A rating that seemingly placed singer and rapper Nyamari Ongegu popularly known as Nyashinski a little ahead than others motivated his latest jibe.

Nyashinski teased local artistes, telling them that he could loan them cash after he was named the second most paid artiste in Kenya according to Music Copyright Society of Kenya (MCSK).

The list released by MCSK was based on airplay data collected from Radio and TV stations and Celebrated Boy Band Sauti Sol topped the list.

The Mungu Pekee hit maker took to Instagram to thank his fans, the TV and Radio stations for supporting his music and told the other artistes that they could borrow loans from him.

Fans congratulated him commending him for great music, saying he deserved the win.

Christina Shusho, Mercy Masika, Eunice Njeri, Bahati and Gloria Muliro were among the Gospel artistes among the top 20 earners.

King Kaka, Les Wanyika, Otile Brown, Octopizzo, Dady Owen, Willy Paul, Ringtone, Nameless and Khaligraph Jones also made it to list.

This comes a few days after the Music society revealed that it would distribute Ksh. 37.5 Million to musicians from licensing performance in Public places. 60% of the amount would be distributed through data from radio and TV airplay and 40% would be distributed generally to members.
