Grandpa records recording studio is up and running months after it was raided by unknown burglars who made away with equipment worth Sh1.5 million.

Speaking during an interview with a local station, Refigah, the CEO of the company revealed the raid was an inside job, however, the main suspect fled out of fear.  

The recording studio has come back bigger and better as it now has a sub-branch by the name Grandpa Dynamics that deals in PR, marketing, branding and events planning.

Grandpa Records and Grandpa Dynamics are now located at Magiwa estate in Ngumo, a location the CEO describes as bigger and more secure.

“After we lost our production equipment at our offices in Olympic we closed down business for almost two months. We were looking for a bigger and more secure space. We finally settled on Magiwa estate in Ngumo,” Refigah said.

Refigah quite singing in 2007 and decided to save up and venture into music production and management. In 2009 he started Grandpa Records that has seen several local artists kick-start their music career.

“The name Grandpa was inspired by the fact that I consider myself a grandfather in the industry; our generation of artists gave birth to the likes of Juacali and E-Sir, who in turn gave birth to the likes of DNA and Madtraxx,” Refigah said.
