KZN artists have came to a decision of appointing a committee that will help combat the high rate of music piracy.

DJ Tira, masakandi singer Thokozani Langa and gospel singer Thinah Zungu are the ambassabadors of the committee.

Speaking to Daily Sun, project manager of the KZN Music House Mpendulo Ngubo said that they have selected artists across all music genres to join forces with them and become ambassadors in the anti-music campaign.

“We have decided to raise awareness and encourage our communities to be whistleblowers on piracy,” Ngubo told the paper.

The campaign has started its provincial tour in Empangeni and will be touring around KZN.

“Something has to be done. We are being ripped off every day and piracy is making us hungry as artists. We demand that police arrest all the culprits who are selling on the streets,” said DJ Tira.

Thinah told the paper that even though their album sales reach gold they are often broke. “Artists lives don’t improve because of piracy,” said Thinah.

The committee is looking forward to fighting and improving the lives of artists and asking for support from the government, police and communities at large.
