A music and filming recording studio in Gatanga to be ready in 14 weeks

By Boniface Gikandi | July 25th 2020

Artistes have welcomed the unveiling of a Sh25 million audio and visual recording studio project in Gatanga, Murang'a County.

Kenya Film Classification Board Chief Executive Ezekiel Mutua, who launched the initiative, said it would help nurture musical talent in the county. 

This is especially good news for residents who are musically inclined after equipment worth Sh5 million was vandalised seven years ago at a facility near Kirwara market days after installation. 

The new studio is set for completion in 14 weeks. Veteran musician Peter Kiggia wa Esther welcomed the project, saying it was long overdue.

The studio, he said, follows a plea for such a facility from industry players during the burial of John Ng’ang’a, alias John Demathew.

“The facility will promote young artistes and nurture their talents in music and film making,” said Mr Kiggia. 

Mutua asked residents to use the studio wisely to develop songs and films that would foster unity and nationalism.

He reiterated that the Sh100 million stimulus fund for artistes from the government would be distributed to those who preach peace.
