Sir Trill has been making hit after hits since he first came into the scene in 2020 but the artist says he has never seen a cent from these songs.
Times Live reported that the Amapiano star Tumelo Mzwakhe Zwane, popularly known by his stage name Sir Trill, has spoken out about being exploited and being broke after years of making hits and not receiving a cent from them.
He says he has not seen or received a cent from some of his hit songs. His hits include collaborations.
“It’s tiring and mentally damaging. So many hits and I’ve never seen a cent. I’m tired,” he tweeted.
Many of his followers were left with so many questions and wanted to know who was exploiting him.
“Never been an artist that talks much or exposes much. This will definitely be a joke to some of y’all. Which I understand. But it’s mentally damaging and exhausting. What are we working so much for?” he continued.
He is the man behind many chart-topping amapiano hits in South Africa, including Nkatin ft MacG, Emlanjeni, As’phuzeni, Lwandle Xiluva, Kuwe and Bebengazi.
Some fans have asked him to go to Podcast n Chill, hosted by controversial podcasters MacG and Sol Phenduka.
Fans were shocked by his admissions.
