Since upcoming dance-hall artiste, Blaqy took shots at radio presenters for being ’unprofessional ‘when it came to which music gets airplay, other people have come out calling out the radio presenters for being unethical.The accusations leveled against the radio presenters include, exchanging sex for airplay, money for airplay and as of today, playing music depending on the ‘personal feelings’ they have for a certain musician.
Chess a former Tujuane presenter took shots at the unprofessional presenters saying that :
Radio stations, more specifically RADIO PRESENTERS who use their feelings to decide what Kenyan music to play on air..You are FAILING as part of the major custodians of Kenyan music. Your personal issues or problems with anyone should not affect your job. Your job is to make sure GOOD Kenyan music gets airplay as much as possible. You’re not supposed to play a certain artiste’s music coz you like them as a person, but because they make GOOD MUSIC. And that’s that…give GOOD music airplay. Your personal issues should not destroy professionalism. Which therefore gets me wondering, since when can a radio presenter ban and totally not play an artiste’s music…GOOD music because of their own personal feelings toward the artiste?Half of these people we trust with this Kenyan Industry should just be replaced and totally done away with. #yeahisaidit #takeitorleaveit
