- Government stepped forward to assist with ProKid's funeral and it sparked a huge debate
- L'vovo spread his thoughts over a series of posts on Twitter
- He believes that it is due to a lack of support and societal pressures that local artists die poor
L'vovo stepped in to give his views on government stepping forward to pick up the slack for ProKid’s family so that the Hip Hop artist gets the send-off he deserves.
He believes that government assistance is required because South African artists are not respected or valued enough, reported Times Live.
L’vovo says that SA citizens, along with the government, do not give enough support to local artists and that is why they die poor.
Briefly.co.za learnt that debates around the matter started immediately after the news that the MEC announced government would be lending a helping hand to ProKid’s family to ‘fill the gaps’.
Taking to Twitter, L’vovo gave his opinion on the matter in a series of posts.
He first highlighted that SA focuses too much on international stars rather than their own and that is why artists, like ProKid, cannot even afford a funeral.
He then went on to explain that being famous is expensive weather you like it or not. Being in the public eye and having to maintain an image, is not cheap. He says that societal pressure is making our artists broke.
L’vovo has never been about the flashy life and he likes to believe that he has stayed humble and serves as a voice for the people.
