Ghanaian celebrated Reggae and dancehall artiste, Iwan has angrily fumed at some Disc Jockeys who do not support their fellow countrymen hustle.
He took to his Instagram handle to pen down his frustration saying he cannot fathom why DJ’s do demand ‘Payola’ from their own countrymen but proudly play other foreigners songs.
He refuted claims that when Ghanaian artistes are helped to reach the peak of their career, they tend to become ungrateful and do not pay their dues to same DJs who gave them countless airplay.
Supporting his stance, he quizzed whether any of the foreign artistes have ever paid their dues to some Ghanaian DJs.
He however stressed that good musics must be promoted.
“A Ghanaian Dj waiting for Payola to Play his Fellow Ghanaian Music but Play Popcaan, Movado, Vybz Kartel etc for Free .. Even do Free Mixtapes and Expensive Cover designs for this projects. After all this, they Come dissin GH Acts especially This Innocent Upcoming Acts who have no money to give them. I see So Many GH Dj’s Frustrated.. They expect to be Hailed and celebrated for playing Their Fellow Ghanaian songs, Which I see to be Lame.. if u don’t play Ghana music , which music would u Play.. Forget that Childish talks , say eeerr ‘if we help promote them and they reach somewhere then they forget Us’.. Which Jamaican or Nigerian Artists remembered you when they made their money 💰.. Play Music because you are a Dj. And Good music is to be promoted no matter what. #CornerStone.”
Iwan was a one time hottest artiste in Ghana.
