Moozlie, Dj Ganyani And More Slam Woolworths For Cancelling SA Music On Its Playlists

SA rapper, Moozlie, DJ Ganyani, and more blast Woolworths for removing SA music from their music playlists.

After news broke that music platform Woolworths had decided to play only songs without copyrights, many Mzansi artistes have called them out for their decision. Apparently, they have decided to pull all SA music from their playlists. This, of course, will affect the payment of royalties especially for independent artistes who make a huge amount of income from it.

Mzansi artiste, Ginger Trill first put the Woolies on blast via his Twitter account after the news broke. He was supported by independent artiste, Toya Delayze who revealed how much it would affect artistes like her and lead them to big label slavery. Moozlie, also an independent artiste, had many words to say about it, and so did DJ Ganyani and more.

Moozlie wrote,

I’ve always had a lot of respect for the organizations we have in place to look after & protect the interests of artists in our country but I think it’s high time we start sharing information with not only more artists but consumers too.
“You don’t need a record deal to be registered at RISA. You don’t need a “plug” to know what CAPASSO is. You don’t need a manager to make sure you get your royalties from SAMPRA. And there are more I can mention but essentially… Artist, the power is in your hands,”
