During the 15th Metro FM Music Awards weekend, super producer Tweezy voiced out against the award show not giving producers the credits they deserved. After having contributed to 8 different nominations for his productions and which 5 of those won, Tweezy (who had to purchase his own golden ticket to attend the spectacle) took to twitter to announce the #ProducersMustRise campaign. And although this was not directed at any specific artist nominated or at the Metro FM Awards themselves, its said to be an awareness campaign aimed at getting producers the respect they so clearly deserve.
We have seen similar struggles and awareness campaigns in the past, which dealt with the respect SA MCs demanded. Now the cycle repeats itself, only this time its the beat-makers raising the red flag.
