SINGER and actor Aiman Tino claims he did not get any royalties even after registering with a company two years ago.

Aiman said he hesitated about sharing his opinion about the music industry as he saw himself as a newbie, Harian Metro reported.

“I registered with the company in 2018. I heard from some of my friends that they too had not received any royalties from the organisation.But as I am a newcomer, I was afraid to voice my concerns. It may lead to misunderstanding. So I just listened to my friends’ experience, ” he said.

Aiman claimed there was very little information shared about the royalties payment system, adding that he has been busy preparing to start his own business selling char kueh teow in Wangsa Maju.
