I don’t need any payola for playing Naana Blu’s Odo Asem – Dj Premier Gawu Of Skyy Power FM

A renowned Takoradi based DJ, Michael Gawu, popularly known to many as Dj Premier Gawu who works for Skyy Power FM and currently the Programs and Events Manager for Skyy Groups has stated that he does not need any payola for playing Naana Blu’s Odo Asem because it is a great song that should be played by all Djs who understand what good song is.

The ‘pay-for-play’ practice termed as ‘payola’ is when DJs take money or gifts from musicians, their managers or producers in order to play their songs on radio or television stations. As long as there has been a music industry, there have been attempts — both overt and clandestine — to manufacture hits.

“We need to amplify good quality highlife songs from artists like NaaNa Blu so fans can find out more about such artists and support their works. Why do we need to wait for payola before playing and promoting something that promotes our own identity. Highlife is our own. It’s sweet to the ears,” Dj Premier Gawu admonished.
