“The South African artist likes to exploit the female artist and not pay them what is owed to them. First it was Dj Sbu when he exploited Zahara now his Master KG who exploits Nomcebo Zikode. He made millions and won prizes, but never paid Nomcebo a dime.

“Nomcebo Zikode says Open Mic Productions hasn’t paid him a dime for Jerusalema, while Master KG is enjoying his wealth, the plan behind Jesrusalema hasn’t been paid for membership dues. It is so shameful, disappointing and unpleasant.

@gwigwi said:

“Isn’t Kanti supposed to be paid by SAMRO instead of Open Mic?” We must remember that Nomcebo is presented by Master KG and not the other way around … Artists must understand their transactions before putting ink on mani hayi sies paper … “

We hope the couple can get along so that they can continue to bless the world with their wonderful talent.
