Award-winning kwaito artist Thokozani Ndlovu, aka L’vovo Derango, is not impressed with Metro FM’s refusal to playlist his latest single, Amabhoza.
The song, which features Mampintsha, Danger and Sirbubzin, is the first single from the Durban-born artist’s seventh studio album – The Boss.
L’vovo’s manager Thobela Dlamini, who submitted the track, was told by the Metro FM that “the song did not meet their criteria.”
This angered the Newcastle-born Kwaito star, who is convinced that the Johannesburg-based station’s music compiler, DJ Nutty, is the one who influenced the music committee “not to approve” the track on the playlist.
The infuriated L’vovo asked: “How is it possible that every radio station in the country will give thumbs up to my song, but Metro FM will just turn it down?”
SABC radio station’s rejection of L’vovo’s music is not the first. According to Sunday tabloids, back in 2012, the same scenario occurred when L’vovo released the popular hit Palesa and the music committee didn’t approve the song. But later it was included when it had become popular in South Africa.
