Gazza throws shade at critics

Kwaito artist, Gazza, has said that artists who want to be taken seriously need to spend more time in studio and less time on social media creating false images of themselves.

This comes after an uproar by some musicians who came out guns blazing when Gazza received two nominations in the same category of best music video.

His nomination was later on replaced with Sally’s video titled ‘What You Say’.

Speaking in a statement released today, Gazza said, “In my opinion, artists must spend less time on the internet and more time in studio as music comes from the soul and you will not find it on social media.”

Gazza also threw shade at another local artist who took to his instagram to question his nomination in two categories, and he responded by saying that artists should take their art seriously as he has. He further went on to say that he was out of the country with music.

“Music is not a job that starts at 8am and ends at 5pm, it is a way of life and the only way you will succeed in the industry is if you put the time in and finish an album that you as an artist would be proud of,” he noted.

The award-winning artist who seems to have the interest of other musician’s music at heart also advised performers to take time when crafting their art.

“They need to create songs that have longevity, not just to rush through to finish an album to meet the deadline of the NAMAs,” he said.
