The 28-year-old Cassper Nyovest has accused YFM of being bullies. The rapper has labelled the popular Gauteng radio station “bullies” since they don’t play his music.
According to reports, Refiloe has previously implied that his relationship with the station was under strain because of sponsorships at Fill Up FNB Stadium. Nyovest claims that the station would not play his music because he spoke out about their gripe of SABC 1 being a sponsor at his concert.
YFM station manager denied that the station had blacklisted Cassper’s music.
“YFM would like to reaffirm that we continue to support local music as we always have. Regarding Cassper Nyovest’s recent comments on social media, the station would like to reassure Cassper, Family Tree and all South African artists that the station always has and will continue to playlist good South African music in line with our music strategy and policies. When South African artists do great things, we celebrate in their success. #JustListentoYbroer,” YFM managing director Haseena Cassim said in a statement.
