...are some questions that we need to ask ourselves! Why would a musician through their label and/or management spend huge amount of cash to promote their Facebook page and YouTube videos? However unfair it seems, it is legal advertisement, right? And when advertising, what is your obejective? Is is not to reach a wider audience? When a company advertises a product constantly on TV or radio, psychologists say that the consumer tend to buy what they identify?

Unfortunately that's the norm ..thats why we have silly songs like that "Dandia tu kama mathree" sh!t getting all the air play and great talents like H art the Band (of the Uliza Kiatu fame) and "Elani's" of this world who do great music get no airplay at all....We will not make it on the African' stage musically (leave alone the World stage) with those "nyongwa" non-sense.

Listen to this song H art the band "LovePhobic"

chema za jiuza kibaya cha jitembeza or something like that. The problem nowdays is that majority of the so called ''upcoming musician" are not really muscians. They are confused teens with no talent who admire the lifestyle of muscians. The shit they compose cann't sell, so they use these tactics of bribing corrupt djs to play their music. Corruption killing talents
