In a recent Facebook Live session, Mr. Post, the talent behind the hit track “N’wa Duku,” stood firmly in defense of Munghana Lonene FM’s management.
This comes after Benny Mayengani publicly accused the station of favoritism, particularly in choosing to play Master KG’s song as a crossover instead of tracks by Xitsonga artists.
During the live session, Mr. Post addressed Mayengani’s accusations, urging an end to tribalism in the music scene. “You need to stop being a tribalist,” Mr. Post asserted, emphasizing the importance of unity and inclusivity in music representation.
Pushing back against Mayengani’s stance, Mr. Post highlighted the need for mutual support among different cultural backgrounds.
“If Phalaphala and Thobela FM aren’t playing our songs, that doesn’t mean we should reciprocate by neglecting their tribal sons, either” he stated.
Accusing Mayengani of covert intentions, Mr. Post remarked, “You act as if you’re advocating for young artists, but deep down, you know you’re trying to steal their fanbase.”
Offering a pragmatic suggestion to address Mayengani’s concerns, Mr. Post suggested, “If you want to influence the management, perhaps consider establishing your own radio station.”
This debate illuminates the ongoing discussion regarding the representation of artists on radio platforms and the larger issue of tribalism in the music industry.
