I don’t pay payola|Stonebwoy



Burniton music group CEOs Stonebwoy has disclosed in an interview on Viasat One that he has never engaged in paying payola to push any of his songs. In fact good music sells and his mission is to give out the best to fans out there. Payola is unofficially a marketing strategy mostly used by new or old artiste , where there is an exchange of money before songs get played on radio.

Although the strategy may have worked for many artistes, Stonebwoy insisted not having a part in this act even during early days of his career. He tells Jessica on Viasat One, Celebrity Fanzone “No, I’ve not paid payola to any presenter or DJ before. The thing is, every good song will sell itself with little push”.

He excused himself with a big shout out to the radio presenters who have provided support to his music career; Dr. Duncan, Papa Bills and Blakk Rasta. This does no suggest other DJs or presenters have not been supportive. “Big ups to every DJ and presenter still”. He said.
