He cited examples like TiTTok to buttress his point. He stated this in an interview on Guide Radio on Tuesday. He added that Disc Jockeys don’t have the exclusive privilege of ‘breaking’ or introducing new music to audience.
This he said is because musicians prefer to give their songs to social media influencers rather than DJs. This, he added has forced them to play trending songs so as to satisfy their audience.
“People go through TikTok. If you go out, every DJ wants to play the hit songs….When you go to a party and you’re playing songs, the audience go like, ‘play the songs trending now’. The club owner will be like ‘look sharp, people are leaving.”
