Mnavuna Nilichokipanda! Gospel artiste Eunice Njeri’s calls out Safaricom over Ksh 30 million royalties cash

Gospel artiste Eunice Njeri’s songs are a sound of encouragement to a heart in despair, a gift of hope to a soul at the verge of giving up.
Listening to her well thought out and rather touching lyrics, you can feel a divine direction in it.
But as at November 5, 2016, the recently engaged artiste may be needing the words of encouragement, so prominent in her songs, more than anyone else, as she brought to light the injustice caused to her by telecommunications company, Safaricom

In an Instagram post, the soft-spoken artiste posted a payment log that showed amounts to the tune of 30 million per month, unpaid dues for her music for the past year.
 She suspects malpractice that led to the unpaid dues. She followed the post with a caption in the form of a letter addressed to Safaricom, urging the company to remember her as a singer, whose sole source of income is her music.
The letter goes like this;

“Dear@safaricomltd
My name is Eunice Njeri
Am a Gospel musician and i Love Jesus.

Maybe you might remember me from the close to 30 Million Kenya Shillings you make every month from my music...or almost half a billion Kenya Shillings you have made the last one year, not so big in your eyes but enormous to mine.
The 15 percent you gave to liberty Africa has been generously distributed to themselves and nothing reached me.
Today I struggle with not much to live on but a few shillings I get every now and then.... I tried my best to do what God called me to do but you made the money.
Bound with contracts I may never get anything from you....big as you are who can touch you? I can't. Hopefully you read this and God touches you to remember the singer...that would be me..... Eunice Njeri Mathenge.”
