Youth in Mombasa urged to use Studio Mashinani to exploit their talents

Mombasa County Commissioner Evans Achoki has commended the introduction of Studio Mashinani saying they provide an opportunity to the youth to enhance and exploit their talents.
Achoki said the modern studios introduced and funded by the Ministry of Information, Communication and Technology (ICT) will not only help youth to access free recording services of their music but also serve as platform to market their songs.
Studio Mashinani is a project through which the government has taken recording studios to the grassroots level where the majority of talented youth reside.
Five studios comprising two in Nairobi and one each in Machakos, Mombasa and Kisumu counties have been completed and fitted with modern high-quality recording equipment.
Achoki said, “I encourage youth with music talent to make use of the studios to promote and commercialize their songs.”
The County Commissioner was speaking Thursday when he made a familiarization tour of the Mombasa’s studio mashinani at Sauti House building.
Achoki also implored upon Kenya Broadcasting Corporation (KBC) which manages the studio to formulate ways of ensuring more youth access the facilities and make maximum use of the equipment.
“We must make sure the facilities benefits our youth to earn a decent living and also become successful in the music industry,” he added.
KBC Controller of Programs at the Coastal region Ann Kazungu said the major challenge facing the studio was lack of trained music producers and other personnel to operate the sophisticated equipment.
