How do you know that a music instrument is fake? As demand for music instruments soars, thanks to a younger generation that is keen on learning how to play a guitar, cello or piano, some parents are duped into buying counterfeits that make it hard for beginners to master the art of playing.

Dudu Peevers, a manager at Hedgehog Creative, a music shop in Nairobi’s Sarit Centre that has been in business for 10 years, says as the music industry picks up, guitar sales have shot up.

“We are getting a lot of people who want to learn how to play instruments; from four-year-olds to teenagers to retired parents,” says Ms Peevers, adding that most of her customers are children, teenagers, churches and bands.
