TNS, also known as Nkazimulo Ngema, has criticized Sony Work for allegedly refusing to distribute his music.
TNS has undoubtedly faced his fair share of difficulties in the music business, and his most recent one is his inability to release music. He used his Facebook account to express his annoyance.
The musician alleged in a tirade that he had been calling Sony Music without success. He added that the music label gives amapiano music top priority.
I’ve been trying to get songs released through Sony for a while, but to no effect. BaBusy ne Piano UMusic wam namaAlbum ami ayoze ubolele eStudio shuthi (they are busy priortizng amapino, I guess my album will rot in their studio.) fine. God’s timing, I suppose. Guys, I’m sorry,” he wrote.
TNS furtther stated “My Plan was to release September but this guy who is working for Sony they say SPIRO doesn’t hear me it’s been years I’m insulted by people about Music some even say things that kills my mind because of this brother with whoever they are with to shape my future not. Let me continue releasing music, begging him as if he is my parent to come back to me, he is softer They say they got big plans for me while I was asking them only thing I need is to release, not even caring about how I live they taking advantage that I’m a hustler.””
“I feel they want to see the end of their independence while they are seating with their families They eat well when I see Surviving with releasing MUSIC, not thinking or feeling for me, I FEED FAMILES, I DONATE IN SCHOOLS, I HAVE FAMILIES depending on me with money for music including my own FAMILY and extended families, He has been giving me no choice but to Quit with his actions and he’s team and I’ll never be up for t hat shit, she don’t live for me Alone this is getting out of hands!,” he ranted.
In 2020 TNS shocked everyone after claiming that there was a group allegedly planning on using muthi to either kill him or paralyze him.
He said he does not have parents to fight his battles for him. “They try to do all this bad things so that I quit, so that I give-up, so that I become paralysed, so that in the end, I’ll be unable to make the kind of music I made for South Africans,” He said he was not in competition with anyone, so he asked those who had a problem with him to speak up. “The problem is that in all that is happening they are making fun of my work, and planning sh*t against me. Apparently, there are things that I have and I am not supposed to have… This has been bothering me. I’m not competing with anyone and if someone is competing with me (they) must come forward,” he said.
He later apologized for his remarks.
