Khuzani Mpungose who won crossover song of the year on Ukhozi FM with his song titled iJele will not get even a single cent. Khuzani Would Not Receive A Single Cent From #UkhoziFM
This artist has made an amount of R1 426 435.50 for Ukhozi FM from votes as his song received 957 950 votes. This is just the amount of money he made alone excluding the amounts made by other artists he was competing against. All of this money, Khuzani would not get even a cent.
President of SABC Mmoni Seapolelo stated that the artist who won song of the year receives nothing, they only give out cash to the people who guessed the right song and those who voted.
‘We can confirm that Ukhozi FM would reward three people who guessed right the crossover song of the year. These listeners will receive R60 000 , R40 000 and R30 000 separately. Our song of the year competition does not pay artists, its aim is to push and market their craft.’ stated Mmoni.
Khuzani also confirmed that he won’t be getting a cent.’ This matter has to be reviewed, we as artists should also receive something as we spend too much time and money marketing ourselves and also begging fans to vote for us with their own money.’ stated Khuzani
