DJ Zinhle: I haven't had a source of income in three months.

South African musician, DJ Zinhle, took to Instagram on Tuesday, 14 July 2020 to express her woes to her followers. The Umlilo DJ shared her frustrations with reputable companies, who have asked her to perform a gig or live stream, for free. She explained that in order for her to do a performance, she would be risking her life to be at the required venue, and is confused as to why companies do not acknowledge that she has not received an income since the pandemic started.

One of her fans asked her to call out the company who wanted her to perform a free gig, to which she responded with, “No need…”.

Am I the only artist who gets highly offended when a reputable company/organization asks for a free performance. Like, njani? How am I gonna risk my life going out to record a stream for free when I haven’t had an income for 3 months.
