El Nino hit the nail hard on teh head with this one...

"They're not giving us time, because we don't sound American we're South African to the core. We talk about real social ills that are affecting my people. And South Africa, my friend, is about mediocrity. Mediocrity sells here."

Thanks man. It's the second piece I've written for them, and it was great they were open to a piece like this. I think they did a good job.

Driemanskap sold 2000 copies only. That's just wrong. I feel it was not their best album as some of their mixtape tracks and soem that were even on Hype and downloads was better than some that was on the album , but still it's far better than most ish out there. It deserved to sell much more. But cats are also too hip hop. I dont think the major african radio stations (esp the Nguni ones playlisted their songs, but they made it to the Channel 0 play list. Anyway, big ups to Rob nd Drie manskap.

Nicely done fam..!   

AKA says he been misquoted,he dint say its ok to 'COPY' America..   

And i don't agree wit EL-nino when he says mediocrity sells here..if that was the case then DaLES and them would hav went triple platinum..and i also don't agree wit him when he say u hav to sound american to make it out here..pro,zuluboy,teargas all don't sound american..but i agree when he says joburg based acts get preference over those based outside
