Listen to the conversation below:
Pirating copies is what's killing our local artists... You see them at the corners selling them for R10 or something like that and motorists are buying.— S'thembiso, caller in Centurion
People need to start understanding that things are changing. Music is becoming digital and there's other ways to make money and not just CDs.— Chorus, caller from Limpopo
Anything that we do seems to have a focus on American pop culture... Like with the Superbowl, they make it an absolute festival that every brand wants to be a part of.— Barney, caller from Brakpan
