Artistes and fans of late rapper Dawn Tawn have blasted the actions of some radio stations in the state to put the song of the late Net Boi Gang leader on replay, calling it an act of hypocrisy.
Many people took to the social media to criticize the decisions of these radio stations who dedicated a lot of time in talking about the life and works of the artiste; when nothing was said about him when he was alive.
Some tagged a show of shame, while others tagged it hypocrisy adding that it is normal for radio stations to use the lives of entertainers as contents only when they are dead.
“I know someone will also be waiting for them to die, so they can profile them online or on TV. If these guys are worth talking about in their graves, why not now that they are hustling on the streets”, one fan said.
“If they talked about DT [Dawn Tawn] like this when he was alive, his dream of being famous would have been achieved. They are dush hypocrites”, another wrote.
“Dont Kill Cow For Me When Am Dead, Kill It 4 Me Now Am Alive So That I Can Enjoy It B4 I Die…
