Now that the SABC has received a R2.1-billion bailout from the government to prevent a broadcasting blackout, local musicians are demanding that the public broadcaster pay off this debt.
:ROFL: :ROFL: sorry, you know that's not going to happen.

Don't artists know that their currency is exposure?
You practice a talent, maybe go to university, so you can earn some exposure to buy bread for your kids.

You don't watch movies, listen to music?

Don't they know by now that it's only the right thing to do if you're an ordinary citizen? If you're a minister you don't have to show up for court. Just try that if you're a private citizen.

If the SABC does not pay out the royalties the music groups should just create a group action law suit against the SABC and bring it to its knees.

Now we know why Hlaudi wanted 90% local music content played because he knew he could probably get away with not paying royalties but filling the airwaves with music.

Try that **** with Beyonce, Drake, Taylor Swift, Ed Sheeran etc and see how far it gets you.

Designers, Photographers and Musicians all have one thing in common.

The world thinks they work for the "exposure"...
