LEGENDARY DISCO KING PENNY PENNY ACCUSES SABC CHIEF HLAUDI MOTSOENENG OF RACISM AND TRIBALISM

This was after Motsoeneng allegedly snubbed Limpopo’s legends from a financial support initiative to benefit artists, which was hosted by the SABC.

The fuming Penny Penny, real name Eric Nkovani, lashed out at Motsoeneng, calling him a tribalist and a racist for allegedly snubbing him and Xitsonga music king Thomas Chauke from the breakfast last week, at which music legends received R50000.

Penny Penny, also an ANC councillor candidate in Giyani, said Motsoeneng excluded Limpopo artists because they were Tsongas. He revealed that Motsoeneng believed Limpopo artists were not part of his 90% local music quota.

“What he did is tribalism, and even racism, because Tsonga artists are not taken seriously by the SABC,” Penny Penny said.

“We didn’t even get an invite to be part of the event. That, to me, says he does not think we are legends. We also need that money. I can’t say ‘no’ to money.”

The Shaka Bundu hitmaker said he got a call from the Limpopo Premier Stanley Mathabatha, concerned about their exclusion from the event.
