Today, artistes held a press conference to talk about how collective management organisations, CMOs lack transparency in royalty distribution.

Those who attended the press conference were pioneers in the music industry like; gospel singer Esther Wahome, Rufftone, Jemimah Thiong'o and Rufftone among others.

While speaking to journalists, Rufftone encouraged the importance of artistes being united.

He said most of the pioneers are always united and that he had involved many of them although some did not turn up.

Rufftone said he had talked to Nameless who said he was visiting his mum was was unwell.

"If Nameless did not know there was this meeting, then we could not have known his mum is unwell. We believe musicians are united. I have spoken to other musicians like Jua Cali, Redsan among others. I must give it up to even secular artistes for attending this meeting," he said.

Speaking to an interview with Mpasho's writer Elizabeth Ngigi, earlier today, Nameless said his parents frequently need to be checked on as they are aging.

"I have supportive siblings and we have decided that on weekly basis, we have to go see our parents. They need us so much since they are aging. My dad is in his 80s and my mum is also aging. I am on my way to take her for clinics," he said.

During the meeting, Singer Boss MOG encouraged other artists to always come out and fight for their rights when their stars are still shining.

"If you can't speak out when you are at the top, nobody will listen to you when you are down. It is high time artists like Bahati, Sauti Sol, and Willy Paul attended this kind of meeting. You will be replaced and we need to correct the system as a whole."
