Blaklez new single denied airplay after refusing to pay


Hip hop act Blaklez is currently in the process of promoting a new single off his new album Baby Brother. The rapper was however dealt a major blow after a radio station demanded for money to add the single into rotation, more known as Payola.

Speaking on the situation, Blaklez said “I really don’t wanna comment too much on it, all I can say is I have never done it and I will never do it.

“I just found myself in that situation yesterday because we have an album out and we are trying to push a single. The person that we got as our point person to submit, he came to us and said, ‘Well here’s the situation at that particular radio station,” he told TshisaLive.

He also refused to mention the name of the station he is involved with in order to avoid getting suite.

“Obviously, it is difficult for me to mention names as there’s nothing on paper that could link this person to it. So I don’t want to be in a situation where I get sued or whatever. But we were in a situation like that and I have never and will never do that,” he added.
