Jerusalema Fallout: Master KG Hits Back At Nomcebo

The creators of the beautiful international hit song Jerusalema are now embroiled in an ugly royalty ‘war’.

This comes after Nomcebo Zikode accused Kgaogelo “Master KG” Moagi and Open Mic Productions of not paying her royalties owed to her and being replaced as the singer on the track for a world tour.

The song has made its way across the world and broke the record by sitting on various number one spots on charts across the world.

While the producer and record label boss are touring Europe, award-winning singer and co-author of Jerusalema Nomcebo Zikode has consulted with her legal team from Rosengarten & Feinberg and handed a letter of demand to Open Mic Productions after allegedly claiming to not have received a cent from Jerusalema sales and streams.

Sunday World had also reported that the Xola Moya Wam singer was being sidelined by Open mic bosses and they had used Zanda Zakuza to go on tour singing Jerusalema with Master KG in Paris.

Master KG has since responded to Zikode’s claims on Twitter.

In a tweet, a Twitter user, @MasterKGsa, believed to be the account of Master KG, said, “Last Year Nomcebo Started Jerusalema Tour Without Me And I Never Had A Problem And Few Weeks Back I Started My Tour And Then Nomcebo Went To The Media and Created a Story That I’m Leaving Her behind…I Dont Really Know Why Things Must Be Like This.”

In a separate tweet, addressing the issues surrounding the royalties, @MasterKGsa tweeted, “The Agreement Of Jerusalema Is 50/50 Between Me And Nomcebo But Wants 70% and I Must Get 30%.”

The fallout has since generated a lot of conversation on South Africa Twitter with people sharing varying opinions.
