Woolworths Responds To Maraza’s Outcry On Their Decision To Not Play SA Music

Woolworths Responds To Maraza’s Outcry On Their Decision To Not Play SA Music. In the list of rappers who decided to confront Woolworths on their decisions to stop playing SA music was Maraza. The rapper made a 2 minutes video with a caption tagging the store.

“Thoroughly hurt by the news that @WOOLWORTHS_SA would rather Not play any South African music than pay the small licensing fee that helps put peanuts on the tables of the artists who give so much to our society.
What will it take for you to #PlayOurMusicWoolies? ,” asked Maraza.

Unlike most rappers such as Cassper, Moozlie, Toya Delayze and Ginger Trill who posed complaints Maraza had a response. The store actually assured that they plan to reverse their decision and play the music.

“Hi there, We’ve confirmed with our music supplier that they absolutely still include South African music in our playlists, and there is no intention to change this,” tweeted the story’s offical Twitter page replying to Maraza.

Maraza didn’t let even that response go unanswered he boldly stated that he doesn’t trust if they are telling the truth.

“Struggling to believe u. Intentions r everything, & I think the decision to even ATTEMPT to bypass the local music royalty system is malicious & comes from the top; which is a place full of people who only care about profit margins & not what we, the little South Africans, think,” he concluded.
