Master KG has been sued over Jerusalema and looks like things are getting really complicated.
Producer Charmza The DJ has served Master KG with a letter of demand over copyright ownership of Jerusalema.
Earlier this year, Nomcebo Zikode alleged that she had been left out of all profit cuts from the global hit Jerusalema.
The two stars went on two separate world tours to promote the song further, which seemed a little odd to fans. Nomcebo later came out and denied having a sour relationship with Master KG.
Charmza on the other hand claimed the original melody of the composition, beats & the arrangement of the song and vocals were his.
The producer has been asked to cough up money and credit to different people on several occasions.
Entertainment blogger Phil Mphela released the entire legal document on his Twitter page.
The document stated that Charmza is in fact the copyright owner of the track, considering Master KG called him in to make the song.
The document read: “Our client was surprised to learn that Master KG simply proceeded to release the song commercially, through his record label at the time, Open Mic Productions, without contacting our client and without obtaining the required rights clearances for the use of our client’s copyright-protected music and musical composition.”
