Kenyan rapper Kaligraph Jones also known as Papa Jones blew the internet after exposing the Music Copyright Society of Kenya (MCSK).
Taking to social media, Khaligraph Jones shared a screenshot of Mpesa message showing that he had received Ksh. 2,530 as royalties from the Copyright Board with a warning message to the society as a caption.
Khaligraph made it clear that MCSK must stop sending him peanuts because he gave permission for his music to be pirated.
MCSK Siku Moja Tutakuja Kuwavuruga uko Mbaya Sana, Msijaribu kunitumia izi peanuts tena, Infact I have given Authorization for my Music to be pirated, Don’t collect money on my Behalf anymore, Nisiskie mmeshika mtu akicheza Wimbo zangu kwa street, msinitumie izo peanuts zenu tena, The OG shall be respected #mrinternational
Papa Jone’s post provoked hilarious reactions from other artistes, comedians and fans.

Kwanza Kabisa I thought it was just @khaligraph_jones anazusha then I got my fair share. Watu kama @SautiSol watatumia hii doh aje surely?? If my math serves me right 2500 * 15,000 members that’s 37,500,000 , MCSK are you sure you collected 37M in one year. Na nikikuja kwa your offices it’s all new cars na muliingia kwa ofisi mkiwa kwa Boda. This is very sad and siku moja tutakuja kwa hizo ofisi. Kukula jasho ya Mtu Mwingine ni laana. Anyway Wacha nikanunue nyumba Na hii pesa yangu, if you are selling a property kindly DM serious DMs only. Sasa ntaambia nini watoi wangu? #eastlandoroyalty
