Renowned Zimdancehall chanter, Seh Calaz, born Tawanda Mumanyi, has advised both upcoming and established musicians not to be used by music promoters and producers for nothing but should patiently work until they get deals that reward them financially.
Seh Calaz’s remarks come after an artiste contracted to Nashtv recently posted the contract on social media which exposed unimaginable exploitation of musicians.
He likened mortgaging one’s future for short-term exposure to Lobengula, a Ndebele King, wrongly accused of selling the country to British fortune hunters in the 19th century for a few hundred pounds. Seh Calaz posted on Facebook:
Team rangu ma upcoming nema established artist tese I knw zvinhu zvakapressa asi Dai mavhura maziso and think zvirikumberi, musavhunduke zvinhu, musaitiswe ndapota.
Usafunge kuti wasara ukasa tsomana nevarikunzi vakurira, stop selling the future of your kids and family for the likes or kuti uonekwe uripama platform awo.
I knw a lot of people vanotoenda kunoti tibatsireiwo tipushewo ndopanotangira kusaizwa ipapo ukanokumbira kuti vaku poste value yako inobva yatopera, Nyama yakanaka inozvitengesa yega wait for God’s time.

The owners vachatozofawo votozosiira vana vavo zvichienda zvakadaro and iwewe mhuri yako ingazotenderera kwese uko vachi pihwa mari nani iwewe mbune waisapihwa uchitengesa ma rights e music yako nekuda kunzi uriwanikwa pazvinhu.
