‘Mihadarati,’ crooner Stevo Simple Boy has received a major career boost as he was appointed as an ambassador by the Music Copyright Society of Kenya (MCSK).
The announcement was made by Dr. Mutua, who expressed his admiration for the rapper during a meeting held on July 5.
Dr. Mutua, previously associated with the Kenya Film Classification Board (KFCB), revealed that he had been a fan of Stevo since his KFCB days and had even planned to meet him at one point.
Learning about the financial challenges faced by Stevo, including a fallout with his management after his wife exposed his financial difficulties, Dr. Mutua expressed his sympathy.
He also acknowledged that many artists, especially in the music industry, have been struggling due to the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic.
He is a great guy, so when I learned that he was going through ups and downs, which is normal, you know since Covid a lot of musicians have not found their bearing, so we have met and I have even registered him as a member of MCSK,”Ezekiel Mutua
Recognizing Stevo’s talent and potential, Dr. Mutua registered him as a member of MCSK and appointed him as a youth ambassador, focusing specifically on the campaign against drug abuse.
This new role not only provides Stevo with visibility but also offers him an opportunity to make a positive contribution to society.
It is worth noting that Stevo’s journey has garnered support from various individuals, including Peter Salasya, the Member of Parliament for Mumias East, who provided him with a house to rent and financial assistance of 30,000 Kenyan Shillings, along with three months’ rent.
