I am glad Somali Studio is taking is own action fighting against Somali music copyright, Somalia never had any problem music copyright issues when the country had staple government. 
However now day the people who leaves other countries are taking advantages something called lost tapes of Somali musics they are registering Somali musics their own copyright without the owners consents and selling online CDs and other formats which is crazy. 
We have seen it many songs was founded and produced by SomaliStudio on behalf of Shareero bands  durdur band  and iftin bands songs for sale online.
Something need to be done.
Bless the wealthy kid behind the organisation
