IT seems TV personality and rapper Boity Thulo is feeling the heat of the music industry.
This after she was overheard at the Rockets in Sandton, north of Jozi, suggesting she wasn’t getting booked. This culminated in her expressing that she felt overlooked.
Boity surprised the masses by venturing into music industry. This was followed by her prompt release of her debut single, Wuz Dat.
According to insiders, music event organisers have yet to sniff in the star’s direction despite Boity being well received in the industry.
Said a patron at the Rockets eatery about Boity’s conversation: “I was really shocked to hear Boity say such a thing. I thought she was getting bookings since she has a good reputation in the entertainment business. You’d expect her to be booked for big festive events, but she said she can’t count on Nasty C’s Ivyson Tour as a booking because the two are buddies.”
Another source said her chances of being booked for shows would’ve been high had Boity released a complete album.
Insisted the source: “Well, it makes sense that she can’t land bookings. I mean, Boity can’t expect to go on stage at a packed venue just to perform one song. Maybe, she’ll show us next year how much she’s prepared to fight for her place in the cutthroat music scene.”
Boity refused comment, referring the SunTeam to her manager, Bash Jameson, from ADE Agency.
Bash said: “Boity gets bookings, the one challenge is that she’s not only a musician, she is also an MC. She has to balance a lot of things in the process.”
