Governor Mvurya commissions audio-visual recording studio Ksh14m

The Kwale County government has commissioned a state-of-the-art audiovisual recording studio in Matuga sub-county to empower young people.

The Ksh 14 million facility aims to promote talent and create a source of income for young people, in addition to preserving the different cultural aspects of the coastal people.

Speaking to the press during the commissioning of the facility, Governor Salim Mvurya said his administration will continue to prioritize projects that empower the county’s youth.

Mvurya urged young people to take the opportunity to learn life-changing skills.

“Our vision is to create a well-equipped society, these projects are there to help young people find employment opportunities. I want to see young people engage in meaningful projects to change their lives,” Mvurya said.

He said the launch marks an impactful shift from private studios in Kenya to studios run by government institutions giving more young people access to affordable quality productions.

“It will be an avenue for local artists to bring out their creative side and a boost for their talent development,” he said.

The state-of-the-art AV recording facility houses a photo studio, modern recording studio, editing suite and video production studio.

The facility is well equipped with a variety of modern equipment such as powered speakers and Digital Single Lens Reflex (DSLR) video cameras, among others.

Mvurya said the facility offers a breakthrough in growing local talent.
“It is the only modern studio in the coastal region and we hope that many artists from the region will have the opportunity to record their songs. We have a lot of unspoken talent and this studio will revitalize the industry,” Mvurya said.

The studio is expected to also serve Kwale residents among its 20 neighborhoods through the talent search project initiated by the decentralized unit.
