Hlaudi Motsoeneng, former boss of the SABC, is still going on about the 90% local content quota.

Motsoeneng addressed the audience at the Mzansi Kwaito and House Music Awards and said South African radio stations shouldn't just only play the music of South African artist after they died.

Motsoeneng presented a Lifetime Achievement Award to kwaito legend Doc Shebeleza, according to a report by TimesLIVE.

The former SABC boss said he doesn't understand why local artists aren't supported more by radio stations.

Motsoeneng went on to discuss the benefits of a quota of local content.

Motsoeneng also said that if he was still with the SABC, the broadcaster would be doing better.

It's not the first time Motsoeneng uttered words that not everyone agrees with. Briefly.co.za reported about a week ago that Motsoeneng wants to be South Africa's next leader so he can fix the country.

According to a report by Mail&Guardian, the former SABC boss could be coughing up millions as the Special Investigating Unit aims to recover about R33 million on behalf of the broadcaster.

R21.7 million of this amount could possibly be retrieved from Motsoeneng.
