SA rapper A-Reece asked Mzansi a question, and it sparked a huge debate on social media. The musician wanted to know why the industry is designed to keep artists in debt, and SA shared its opinions in the thousands.
Being a celebrity is not all glam, fame, and fortune as it may seem to us on the outside. Artists are under constant pressure to perform and deliver fresh content that will please their fans.
Then there's the entertainment industry itself. Many have described it as a monster that devours those who dare enter it.
When one of Mzansi's fav rappers, A-Reece, posed a question on social media, it resulted in a debate of gigantic proportions. He got more than 1300 comments since he first shared his tweet.
Why’s the industry designed to keep the artist in debt ?
Even Saudi, who doesn't exactly get along with A-Reece (to put it nicely), gave his opinion on the issue:
Briefly.co.za gathered that Saudi had a little more to say:
I can talk brazy all day bwt facx, scr8 facx but me vindicating myslf bwt facx is only gon’ serve as a fracture 2 anada black kid who’s doin amazing tings in our field. I Ju want a few R2s 4 a crib 4 abakwa Mbishe & 2 empower my neighbours & niggas in it cuz WE ain’t got no hope.

The rest of Mzansi soon followed suit and tried to answer A-Reece's question or give him advice:
@queenskolopad - Fake life is the problem not the industry
@loyisogola- ITS JUST HOW CAPITALISM FUNCTIONS YOUNG SIR
@THATninahastie - Not only that - we are unable to insure our voices - our tool for our craft. No medical insurance insures voices in SA
@unclescrooch - Stay Humble. Save money. Invest in business. Don't spend on things you don't really need. Pay your taxes.
