What is the first name that comes to mind when you hear of Kenya’s most paid artists? Jaguar? Jua cali? Wyre? The real answer will surprise you.

The Music Copyright Society of Kenya paid artists their dues and you will not believe the musician who made the most money through royalties. I bet most of you have never even heard of him.. His name is Junior Kostestes, and as we speak, he is KSh 463, 884 richer. He received his cheque on Wednesday from the the MCSK Rift Valley Director Bernard Mukaisi.
