HART THE BAND SHARES THEIR PERCEPTION ON THE 15% TAX ON CONTENT CREATORS

Published on

Kenyan popular music group Hart the Band shared their thoughts on the 15% tax, saying that the Government needs to restructure the whole thing.

They said that the government should be fair enough to content creators by creating structures that will benefit them.

“We still need structures in the industry. We need them to come and help us build structures, because if they start taxing it, It means it is an industry. There’s no industry without structures.

When they talk about wanting the government to come up with structures, they basically mean that the government should start by acknowledging how the content, or rather the music, that the artists are releasing comes to be by creating avenues to make the process easier and more conducive for them, not only that but also helping them in marketing it so that when they propose wanting to tax them, it finds them that they are in a good position and they comply without hesitation because they truly see the government helping them in one way or another.

Shading some light on the new governmental projects (Talanta Hela, among others) that look to uplift the artists by protecting their work as well as creating more job opportunities for them is a good idea but also a very lame one if they don’t have a vision for how they plan on making it work.

“Kulikuwa na talanta mtaani..kulikua na mpaka ile studio mtaani..ukianza kitu na hauna vision ya kubuild itaisha.

Kila mtu atakua ansquander hiyo pesa inaisha… I feel hivo ndio kenya inakuanga idea hiko, but…” one of Hart Band’s members lamented.

They concluded by urging the public not to generalize everything.
