Giant telecom Safaricom cannot seem to shake off controversy. Just a week after subscribers accused the company of stealing their credit, now renowned gospel artiste Eunice Njeri is taking on the company over unpaid royalties.
In a recent Instagram post, the recently engaged artiste revealed a payment log amounting to Ksh 30 million in royalties every month which are the unpaid dues for her music.
Here is the post
My name is Eunice Njeri
Am a Gospel musician and i Love Jesus.
Maybe you might remember me from the close to 30 Million Kenya Shillings you make every month from my music…or almost half a billion Kenya Shillings you have made the last one year, not so big in your eyes but enormous to mine.
The 15 percent you gave to liberty Africa has been generously distributed to themselves and nothing reached me.
Today I struggle with not much to live on but a few shillings I get every now and then…. I tried my best to do what God called me to do but you made the money.
Bound with contracts I may never get anything from you….big as you are who can touch you? I can’t. Hopefully you read this and God touches you to remember the singer…that would be me….. Eunice Njeri Mathenge.”
