Cassper Nyovest is not happy with the radio industry right now.
Yep, the rapper, who's had a great 2015 with many achievements, has revealed that radio stations are not playing his music. Despite his Refiloe album going platinum on Tuesday, Cassper is not happy.
He told Bonang Matheba on The Front Row on Metro FM on Wednesday morning: "Yo, I just went platinum like yesterday... and I don't have any singles playing on radio except Mama I Made It, it's an old song. I just put out 20 songs, I don't have one song that's playing on radio. We've been trying to submit for almost three weeks now for a new song on radio. They don't play my stuff on radio, man, but if you see on TV and radio they play other guys on high rotation. My stuff they play once in a while. For me it's such a big problem, I'm trying to grow."
Cassper doesn't believe he's getting the love he deserves on radio. "For me, after doing The Dome, I need to be treated like Beyoncé in my country. Like the radio is supposed to play me like Beyoncé, you know what I'm saying. and I need it. The fact that I'm doing well without it is cool, but I think my music needs to play on radio 'cause I need it. I don't need to be fighting for my music to be played on radio."
When Bonang asked why he thinks things are the way they are, Cassper elaborated: "There's a personal vendetta against me, and I hear about it a lot. Apparently DJs say I'm too big now, I don't greet them or they don't see me around, you know. People want me to chill with them and I'm busy."
He pleaded with radio DJs to play his music, adding: "I'm just asking for people to play my music. I'm not trying to fight with anybody, I don't think I'm bigger than anybody because of the numbers."
