Professor claims DJ Tira behind festivals snub

Veteran Kwaito sensation, Professor isn’t having the best of run at the moment as he claims he is being snubbed at festivals. However, he feels DJ Tira might be responsible for his woes in that regard.

The Kalawa Jazmee affiliate whose real name is Mkhonzeni Langa has definitely paid his dues on the circuit. Spanning from his days with the Durban-based Kwaito duo, Tzozo and Professor, he was instrumental to the birth of the sub-genre, Durban Kwaito Music.

However, Professor who recently released his “Composed By Jesus Christ album now feels he is being blocked out from the same movement he helped create; saying he doesn’t even know what more to do to get show invitations.

“I’m frustrated by the fact that I’m overlooked by organisers of events. These are the same people who I’ve helped succeed. I even end up asking to be put on line-ups because I have fans and I end up charging a fee I don’t usually charge.”

“What must I do because I made the song ‘Woz’ eDurban’ which put Durban on the map and I work with Durban artists but at festivals, I get overlooked” Professor told news outlet, Isolezwe.

Only thing is that Professor knows who is behind his struggles and he believes Afrotainment Boss, DJ Tira might be to blame even though they have worked together for years.

“I’ve worked with DJ Tira for years while he was starting out. He found Big NUZ because me and T’zozo begged him to give the guys a shot because he’s business minded. It surprises me now that I have to beg to be put on even when I have a hit song. What must I do?” he stated.

In his reaction, DJ Tira absolved himself of any blame; claiming Professor‘s charges weren’t feasible but still chose to apologise if he had made a mistake in anyway.

We only hope the two are able to sort their differences and that the experience of Professorcomes to play at festivals having given a lot to the industry.
