- Fans took to the Twitter streets to have their say
Twitter is a good platform to start a debate that will have others sharing their opinions. The recent debate started was regarding rappers who are presently dominating the internet and radio.
The most competitive genre appears to be hip-hop, where some rappers are making it bigger than others. The internet plays a big role in giving some the advantage, whereas radio has also given sme a helping hand in their success.
Briefly.co.za learnt that, together with Reason, a twitter user by the name of Mthunzi started the discussion.
They were debating the subject of how and why A-Reece’s music became such a big hit on digital space but somehow was unable to gain even one radio play, and then we see AKA who is able to achieve more radio plays.
Commenting, the twitter user said that he feels the South African rapper fan base appears to not have any interest in radio charts. The fans have access to the internet, which has allowed A-Reece to gain success without the help of MTV Base promos.
Reason’s response was that AKA and Kwesta dominate radio, whereas A-Reece and Shane Eagle have dominance over the internet. Then we have those who are able to hold down the internet and radio, such as Nasty C and Riky Rick. He then went on to say that no matter who’s running what, they are doing it in their own way and succeeding.
Fans took to the Twitter streets to share their mixed views:
