- The South African government’s latest Copyright Amendment Billhas caused a stir
- Reason took to social media to share his views in agreeance with a statement made by an online publication
- The influential rapper believes that this Bill will have no positive effect on artists
Concerns about the South African government’s latest Copyright Amendment Bill has been raised by Mzansi rapper, Reason. He is of the opinion that the Bill will not benefit SA artists in anyway.
Briefly.co.za learnt that Reason was set off by a tweet made by an online publication, SlikourOnLife, in which they pointed out just how this Bill is destroying the artistry of South Africans.
The tweet questioned the minister and president as to why they are not seeing the damage that is being done. It went on to say that we do not have land, don’t run economies and now we handing the last thing we can say we own which is our creative output.
Reason then retweeted the post, suggesting that the government does not care for the South African musicians, because if there was any consideration from the government’s side, they would surely be making a noise about the fact that their legacy is being snatched right in front of them. Preach!
