Nomcebo Zikode who is the vocalist on the song revealed a few months ago that she was not paid a dime for the song and now Charmza the DJ and Biblos have instituted legal action against the music producer, Open Mic Productions record label, and distributor Africori for copyright infringement.
KG initially slammed the report by saying they will get no outcome from the court.
“Looking forward to you reporting the outcome of the case if there gonna be any,” the DJ wrote.

It then explained in an interview on Newzroom Afrika that Nomcebo liked Charmza’s Jerusalema beat and not KGs’.
Reacting to the interview, Master KG expressed his frustration and anger at those tarnishing his name.
