Rapper Cassper Nyovest has accused radio channel YFM of not playing his music. The rapper explains that the reason the Gauteng based radio station doesn’t play his records is because SABC1 sponsored his famous #FillUpFNBStadium concert last fall.
“YFM doesn’t play my music because SABC 1 sponsored #FillUpFNBStadium and I tweeted about it and now they want me to apologise. They are a very strong platform that I used to love but they are bullies! We are going to stay shining though,” he wrote on social media.
YFM’s station manager however denies Cassper’s claims.
“YFM would like to reaffirm that we continue to support local music as we always have. Regarding Cassper Nyovest’s recent comments on social media, the station would like to reassure Cassper, Family Tree and all South African artists that the station always has and will continue to playlist good South African music in line with our music strategy and policies. When South African artists do great things, we celebrate in their success. #JustListentoYbroer,” YFM managing director Haseena Cassim said in a statement.
