Mzansi DJ and producer pH Raw has spoken of the raw deal he had in the hands of established musicians in the industry. According to him, the established cats snubbed him when he reached out to them for features.
He made this revelation in a tweet on 20 July 2020. The tweet elicited robust engagement from fans and some up-and-coming artistes, who voiced similar frustrations.
Where the established voices failed him, he looked up to the new lyricists in Mzansi’s universe. It’s been poetic ever since. The new cats are only too eager to work with pH Raw – also called pH Raw X. they have been really good to him, and he is happy.
By the way, pH raw X’s experience is not unique to South Africa. Artistes around the world experience similar frustrations. Some are comfortable expressing the problem; others would rather keep quiet. Either way, the problem is there, and will always be there. And, like pH Raw X, artistes overcome their frustrations by working with those who would work with them.
