Chomee has levelled strong accusations of abuse, exploitation and mistreatment of female artists against promoters in the music industry
The singer who left Arthur Mafokate’s record label about two years ago to spread her wings as an independent artist, also opened up about being down and out because she is allegedly owed hundreds of thousands of rand from promoters.
According to Sunday World, Chomee shared her feelings in an open letter which was apparently shared on social media. However, it seems like the letter has since been deleted.
“I am writing this letter to try and get them to realise times are hard for me and I need to survive to support my family. I am writing this letter out of frustration as a young female artist,” she said.
Chomee then explained how excited she was when she started getting bookings other than the ones her management secured, but that was short-lived.
“I got booked for a lot of gigs separate from my other gigs from my managers. I did most of them but the most painful thing is the abuse and exploitation by some promoters who treats us like objects.
“To this date I am owed hundreds of thousands of rands by big names in the industry and most are powerful people I am even scared to name and shame,” she said.
