Grandpa Records have released a statement prohibiting politicians to use their music during political rallies without their permission.
The statement sent to Word Is read: "It has come to our attention that politicians across the country are heavily using music owned by Grandpa Records, along with DNA's back catalogue, for purposes of seeking popularity, self-promotion, and promotion of their agendas.
"In particular, the songs Chapa[Fimbo inachapa], Maswali Ya Polisi, and Banjuka Tu are being exploited due to their massive popularity among all Kenyans, to catch their attention, and to sway potential voters.
It continued: "We would like to categorically state that we prohibit all political alliances, parties, and candidates from playing / using our music at political rallies, meetings, and any other forms of exploitation, without written consent from Grandpa Records."
The music label added that they "not hesitate to take legal action against any person or entity that will continue to exploit our intellectual property without our consent".
