Robert Kamanzi aka R Kay has quit as the Performers Rights Society of Kenya (PRiSK) chairman and director, Pulse can confirm.
His place has been taken by singer Iddi Achieng. Daddy Owen has filled up the Casual vacancy.
Confirming the change of guard, the society’s CEO Angela Ndambuki tells Pulse that R Kay had notified the society of his leaving as he is out to venture on different commitments in his life.
Meanwhile, it was drama in Malindi early this week when artistes took to the streets protesting during the hearing of a case between artistes and Collection Money Organisation (CMOs) over the payment of Skiza Tune royalties. Safaricom has been enjoined in the case.
The artistes took to the streets as Judges Asike Makhandia, William Ouko and Kathurima M’Inoti ordered Safaricom Ltd to file a replying affidavit within ten days, in cases seeking to overturn High Court orders that restrained Safaricom from remitting Skiza Tunes royalties to CMOs.
