South African singer and songwriter, Nomcebo Zikode, who featured on Master KG’s global hit song ‘Jerusalema’ has revealed that she hasn’t received any money from the record label for her Jerusalema feature.
She said her voice and lyrics have transcended globally, but she still awaits what is due her, adding that she has been ridiculed, with efforts to marginalise her contribution.
“Thank you to all the fans of Jerusalema you have made my dreams a reality, with attaining a global hit song. My voice and lyrics have transcended globally, but I still await what is due to me.”
“I have not been paid a cent by the label for Jerusalema, despite the song’s global success. I’ve been ridiculed by efforts to marginalise my contribution. As a female artist, I can’t stay silent on this anymore, the matter is with my lawyers.”
Meanwhile Master KG says the agreement of Jerusalema is 50/50 between him and Nomcebo, but she wants 70%.
Master KG added that last year, Nomcebo started a Jerusalema Tour without him but he never had a problem with it. A few weeks later, he started his and then Nomcebo went to the media and created a story that he was leaving her behind.
He claims Nomcebo was paid 1.5 million rands for her contribution to the song.
The Jerusalema track has topped music charts all across the globe, and spawned the most viral dance craze in the past year.
