I wonder if people get into the music industry to make money and to entertain or to push a certain agenda. Recently I listened with disgust to two songs titled Sister Bettina and Sis Khethiwe. The one is worse than the other.
These songs are derogatory, insulting and very explicit. They demean and devalue the male species, and our culture.
We were brought up with respect and certain values, but songs like these undermine us and our hard-earned democracy in the name of freedom of expression and artistry.
The fact that they are sung in an African language makes it worse because even young children can understand them.
What type of education are we instilling in our children ? No wonder we are labelled the lost generation.
This may sound primitive, but we really miss the music of Harari, Sipho Mabuse, Brenda Fassie, Ali Katt, CJB, Patricia Majalisa, Kamazu, Mr Chaklas, to name but a few.
I wonder if the songwriters of the two unlikeable songs are paying royalties to the family of the late Aaliyah for using her song to push their personal agenda.
If not, the South African Music Rights Organisation and recording companies must do something about it. How do we buy Proudly South African music if artists are recording such horrible songs?
