Inkabi Records boss Big Zulu has taken a shot at South African musicians who try to sound American in their songs.
The songster thinks artistes ought to stick to their South African roots instead of trying to sound American in order to get a break internationally. He thinks this habit of trying to sound American is especially visible in hip hop.
He stated that if artistes stick to their roots, the right people will appreciate them He cites the celebrated disc jockey and producer Black Coffee as an example of one artiste who has stuck to his ethnic root yet has become internationally famous.
He added that mixing Western culture with the African way of doing things is the ultimate recipe for an embarrassment. The songster revealed this position in a recent interview, which you can check out below.
