The popular brand ambassador of Chelsea London Dry Gin Tweeted a series of #OnAReal tweets and one tweet that got tongues wagging was “it aint a crime paying a dj or OAP to play your song.” This drew attention of industry watchers as there has been a long debate as to whether artistes should pay Djs and OAPs for airplay, though in practice that’s usually a norm in showbiz. This tweet was immediately picked up and reactions began to pour in.
