Over a hundred artists who marched from the Sentech tower in Brixton to the SABC in Auckland Park held a public protest at the SABC on Tuesday and handed a memorandum to the SABC's spokesperson Kaizer Kganyago.
The artists slammed the South African Broadcasting Corporation for "dragging" its feet in properly addressing the scourge of alleged payola at the SABC.
There was no comment or statement from the SABC's Kaizer Kganyago following the public protest.
In Tuesday's memorandum handed to the SABC, the group says that "bribes must end" at the SABC as far as playlisting of music is concerned.
"We as South African artists feel that our music that we submit every Tuesday to the SABC is not being valued or playlisted because of the corruption that has been happening through decades of the Syndicate Brown Envelope to SABC compilers."
"Our music have been kept in the SABC library even after 90/10 local being approved."
The "90/10" is a reference to Hlaudi Motsoeneng's edict for 90% local South African music to be played across the SABC's radio stations.
The group demanded that SABC compilers "must be monitored and there must be a team to do listening sessions with compilers for all the music we submit to be playlisted."
The group said "the SABC must have an office to submit [to ask] for interviews for all SABC radio stations".
