Chaka Chaka, widely known as The Princess of Africa, recently released her first album in more than three years but in an interview with Tonight, she admitted that she was stunned by the lack of attention that it had received.
“I’m really not sure what is going on with the SABC because they are not playing my new music.
“I don’t know if they want me to pay them to play it, or maybe Universal is not marketing it well, I just don’t know,” said the Umqombothi singer.
“I think it’s a good CD because I spent so much time on it and had great artists and producers work on it.
“I’m a perfectionist and that means I spend a lot of time on my projects and on this one I spent more than two years from start to finish.
“I travelled to different places to see what my people like and made sure I put that on the album, but bizarrely it is not getting any airplay.
“My question to Universal is: ‘Where is the problem?’ Why can’t they sample all the radio stations because new material is always needed?“
