Mombasa gubernatorial hopeful Suleiman Shahbal says the recently launched state of the art recording studio in Mombasa will uplift the talented youth in the county.
Shahbal said the all-in-house studio SS Media located in Nyali Mombasa, will enable young artists to get a platform to record their music and any other productions with an aim of reaping from their God-given vast talents.
The investor said for years, the upcoming artists and youth have faced drastic challenges that have seen their talents going to waste.
“The modern studio will enable upcoming artists to record quality music and any other productions as we work towards linking them up with other relevant entertainment organisations so that they grow their talents and music career,” disclosed Mr Shahbal.
He said the artists will also get time to interact with the already established musicians from Mombasa and beyond as well as producers who can assist and guide them to produce quality music that suits the current dynamic market.

“We have to know and clearly understand the dynamics of the entertainment industry and give the audience what they want, we are in the digital error and we have to grab the opportunities available,” said the politicians.
Shahbal challenged the artists to focus beyond Mombasa and the Kenyan market and focus on the East, Central Africa and the world.
“We have the talents, no one can dispute that fact but our challenge has for years been how to nurture them. We need mentorship programs and linkages for our artists to go beyond Mombasa,” he said.

The recent launch was also graced by Kiss FM breakfast show presenters Kamene Goro and Jalang’o among other renowned names in the music industry like the top East Africa producer Shirko, artists Kaa la Moto, Dazllah, Radio Kaya presenter Robert Matano famously known as Robby Dallaz.
The studio according to Shahbal will offer opportunities to upcoming artists whose talents have for long remained untapped and also boost the creative industry in Mombasa.
