Gospel singer Daddy Owen will soon be representing other artists after he became a board member at Performers Rights Society of Kenya (PRISK)
The singer will be working with Beatrice Achieng, HSC, popularly known as Iddi, who has been elected the new board chairperson at Performers Rights Society of Kenya after Rkay, left for the US to pursue personal engagements.
“Daddy Owen brings in extensive experience in the industry. He is joining a working team whose vision is to be one of the most efficient and effective CMO to its members,” Achieng Said.
“Our focus at PRISK is to increase the royalties we pay performers. This will be achieved through the parameters we have set to significantly boost our collections countrywide. We have done it before, so I am confident that we will even surpass our targets this year,” she added.
With 15 years of experience and multiple hits, Daddy Owen was a perfect fit for the post.
“We welcome Mwatia to PRISK and thank Kamanzi for his time, input and dedication as we look forward to the new leadership,”said Angela Ndambuki, PRISK’s Chief Executive Officer.
“This is also a defining moment for the industry as we look toward a more specific regulatory framework. The Kenya Copyright Board (KECOBO) has just concluded its nationwide stakeholders forums on the draft CMOs regulations. This is a timely move by KECOBO as PRISK enters its second strategic phase, 2017-2019, with our operations being pegged on Transparency, Accountability and Governance which are also the overarching pillars in the new regulatory framework.”
