The Kenya Association of Music Producers— which represents the rights and interests of producers of sound recordings and whose membership comprises record labels — has elected lawyer Angela Ndambuki as its first female chairperson.
Ndambuki (right) told People Daily that her board would engage stakeholders and policymakers to lobby against unfortunate attempts by the regulator (Kenya Copyright Board) to capture the collective management organization (CMO), through illegitimate and retrogressive legislation.
“Particularly, the proposed miscellaneous amendments to the current Copyright Act are inimical to the growth of the producer collective management activities in the country,” she said in her maiden speech.
Priority areas of the new board, whose membership comprises four women and three men, include offering effective leadership, inspiring member confidence and establishing local and global networks.
