Spikiri calls radio stations out for ‘not playing’ kwaito music

Trompies member Spikiri has slammed radio stations for not playing kwaito music‚ adding that he believes that the contribution kwaito veterans have made to the industry is not being recognised.

Speaking to DRUM‚ the kwaito legend claimed that his music has been overlooked by a number of radio stations.

“Radio does not play our music‚” he told the local publication.

“New school artists do not respect the contribution we have given in South African music industry because of this.”

Spikiri further revealed that while he is happy with the 90% local music quota introduced to radio stations by SABC in May‚ he is still not satisfied with the efforts done in getting their music playlisted.

“It’s like we have to go straight to Hlaudi to have our music played. Some of us are breadwinners and that is why Mzansi musicians die paupers. People want to show gratitude after you are dead. Play our music‚ respect us“

Spikiri is not the only artist to wage war against radio stations for not playing music. Cassper Nyovest has‚ on several occasions‚ revealed that his music was not getting any airplay.

The rapper told fans earlier this month that he was doing his all to get playlisted on radio- but with no success.

The Mama I Made It rapper recently released a new single‚ but after radio apparently again‚ ignored his work‚ he took to Twitter to beg fans to help him get the song airplay.

And when that did not yield any results‚ he subsequently opted to personally deliver his new music to radio‚ and monitor whether or not it’s getting played. He continued to plead with fans to request it while listening to radio.
