Calls for music regulatory body

A music Teacher is calling on relevant authorities to set up a professional regulatory body for the Music Industry.

Tarzzy Metta, a music teacher in West New Britain said the Government should start looking at this seriously before the Industry is taken over by unscrupulous people.

Tarzzy Metta is also the Chairman of the West New Britain Music Association.

His call for a professional regulatory body for the Music Industry follows what he says is unethical behaviours portrayed by popular young PNG musicians.

Recently, a video went viral on the social media platform “Facebook” of a band member of Wild Pack, uncontrollably bashing a helpless fellow artist, Raga Siaii.

Metta believes, a regulatory body can address issues of how to deal with artists promoting violence.

He further extended this call to the radio industry.

Metta questioned whether the Radio Industry has any ethics committee that overlooks content and so on.

He believes if the radio has such a body in place, they can find a way to address such issues as well.
