There were impressive NEW ENTRANTS into the top ten list such as BAHATI , Willy Paul , Mum CHEROP , H-Art the band , Rabbit and Hellena Ken . Further below at number 16 was KRISTOFF who was a NEW ENTRANT into the top 20 list .

In the INTERNATIONAL CATEGORY , DIAMOND dislodged ANGELA CHIBALONZA as the highest earner and most popular Non - Kenyan artist . Christina Shusho was at number 2 with Ali Kiba closely following at number 3 . Jose Chameleon and Rose Muhando wrapped up the top 5 foreign earners .

MCSK noted with concern that a majority of the radio and television stations were broadcasting more of foreign works against the Government directive for broadcasting of more local works . This lead to the highest earner being non - Kenyan ( DIAMOND ) and taking home kshs 352,807/- for the three month period from April to June 2015 , which was more than the Kenyan highest earners .

The combined top ten highest earners list including foreign works only had FOUR Kenyan musicians featuring in this list as follows :

COMBINED LOCAL AND FOREIGN TOP TEN LIST

1) DIAMOND

2) SAUTI SOL ( Kenyan )

3) CHRISTINA SUSHO

4) ALI KIBA

5) BAHATI ( Kenyan )

6) LADY WANJA ( Kenyan )

7) JOSE CHAMELEON

8) ROSE MUHANDO

9) WILLY PAUL ( Kenyan )

10) KOFFI OLOMIDE

Mcsk would wish to encourage more radio and television stations to support local musicians and broadcast the local musicians works so that we can build our local industry even more . It is disheartening to see that only FOUR of our Kenyan musicians were within the top ten list of radio and television stations IN KENYA .

Mcsk would however wish to thank all Kenyan radio and television stations for making remittances to MCSK for the broadcast royalties.
