Mzansi stars who are the creators of the beautiful international hit song Jerusalema are now embroiled in an ugly royalty ‘twar’.
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 the various number spot 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.
