Petra Du Plessis started this petition to President Cyril Ramaphosa and

Some musicians received food parcels from churches to make a living. Since the start of this pandemic, no one cared about the SA musicians and artists. Churches closed down, therefore worship leaders and worship teams who made a living from churches never got assistance from the government. Some singers had to find other ways to make ends meet. These people have families to feed. Children to support and bills to pay. The bills kept coming and some were blacklisted for not paying their bills. They had nowhere to turn, no support from the community or the government. The musicians had to improvise by starting indoor concerts, which by the way did not pay the bills. I was one of the worship leaders who had a concert with smile foundation, but never received a sent. They just said they had expenses to cover. I had an interview with a few artists who were down in the dumps. I tried to sell my story to newspapers and magazines, but most of them ignored me completely. Others just said they have their own journalists. One of the artists bottled chillies and sold that for some income. Another, which is a well-known producer is moving overseas soon. All complaining about the same thing. No support in SA for artists.
