Why LeAnne Dlamini is not happy with SABC's 90% local music

LeAnne Dlamini is one of the few South African artists not happy with SABC radio's 90% local music content.

The decision was taken about a week ago, after several artists, including Don Laka, fought very hard for more local content on radio. 

After the news was announced, several musicians, including AKA and DJ Black Coffee, took to social media to express how happy they were about the decision. 

However, LeAnne is not too impressed. In a video posted on Instagram, the singer said: "I feel like they are not filtering what's being played. They're not giving us music with good song-writing, lyrical content, good production."

She went on to say they're just playing "any old Old MacDonald had a Farm kinda song". 

LeAnne explained that this turns the listener off. "You won't want to listen to local music anymore because that's all that they're playing..."

She added that the music should be spread across all genres.

Anyone else feel me?!
