Media personality, IK Osakioduwa, has advised his OAP colleagues to desist from the act of collecting money to play a song on radio.
He revealed that he has never asked for money to play any artist’s song.
Ik Osakioduwa habitually uses his social media page to address a range issues, and now the radio/TV personality is making a bold claim that he has never asked for money to play any artist’s song.
Payola is an illegal practice of music labels or individuals influencing airplay in favour of their acts by paying radio and TV stations.
In a post shared on his Twitter timeline, the Rhythm FM OAP, addressed the problem that has eaten deep into the structures of the Nigerian music industry, stating that he has never received money from any artist to play their song in all his years on radio.
In his words, ”In my entire radio career, I have never asked for money to play any artiste’s song on radio. I think It’s wrong… I am just saying this to encourage you to not do it anymore”.
