48-year-old DJ Pinye angers fans after saying he can’t play “Lambo lolo” or “New Position” by Ethic

As much as controversial rap group Ethic has gone viral with their hit “Lamba Lolo”, not all music lovers are in support of them. At least not yet.

Veteran DJ Pinye recently revealed that he can’t play any of the kid’s songs because they are not yet up to bar. Ethic, which comprises of Swat, Seska, Reckless and Zila, have been enjoying a lot of airplay on local radios mainly because of their nasty lyrics.

Speaking during an interview on NRG Radio, the popular DJ, who has been in the industry for almost three decades now, longer than the four kids have been on this planet, said that artists have to prove themselves first before he plays their songs.

He told Kamene Goro and Andrew Kibe who host the morning show that artists like Khaligraph Jones now enjoy airplay from him but that wasn’t the case a while ago.

“There are artists whose music I did not play back in the days including @KHALIGRAPH and DNA but their career has grown. I cannot play Lamba Lolo or New Position. Djs shouldn’t play mediocre music,” he said on NRG’s Breakfast Club.

Here’s how fans reacted:

Blake @TheeApolloh: @Djpinye1 is kinda right, the two songs are just breakthroughs but with zero moral content

Holy Grail @James_Nevricks: Imagine not playing Lamba Lolo because you think you are too mature. Tragic

DJ RëS@resresnation: If such music is what my audience want …I will play them.. I’m a Dj, my job is to make my audience happy…

Orb of discord @nyotttu: DJs ni entertainers…..not moral police

Edgar Ja Bay ®     @jamlekjakababa: Everyone is entitled to opinion but imagine sio amust saa zingine uonge. Such a reckless statement with a lot of irony in it. You can play international songs that are literally trash but local musicians who are busting their balls to make music cant get a playback from you. Smh
