Black Dillinger unhappy with SA music media
Internationally-renowned South African reggae artist Black Dillinger is very unhappy that he is not as big in South Africa as he is in Europe.
The star spoke to Sowetan just days before he was due to tour Europe for three months.
He said: "Reggae music lacks mainstream media exposure in South Africa. It unfortunately does not get the attention that it deserves from recording companies, radio as well as television.
"For example, I took my DVD, which was shot by some German guys using the latest technology in video production, to local radio and television stations. This video is played frequently on television stations in Europe, but it was rejected last year by the producers of [SABC1 music show] 'Live'."
The reggae singer emerged from Gugulethu, Cape Town, in 2004 and has made inroads abroad. He has released three albums: 'Live and Learn' in 2007, 'Love Life' in 2009, and 'Better Tomorrow' in 2011.
He is currently based in Berlin, Germany.
