He mentioned that “it was best to pay payola to djs to get your songs heard by the public”.
He noted that in Ghana, if an upcoming artistes fails to pay payola, he/she will have their music rot in their closet.

The VGMA nominee was however quick to add that although he endorses paying payola, he was going to go hard on any dj who takes his money and fails to play his music.

Atom expressed his distaste at the piracy in the system saying ” the websites upload our songs for people to download it but they fail to give us some of the proceeds they get” adding that he, if given the opportunity, will fight this cheat boot for boot.
