- Musician DJ Maphorisa has pleaded with fellow artists to give ghostwriters their due acknowledgement in public
- Taking to social media, DJ Maphorisa explained his feelings regarding ghostwriters and artists giving them credit
- Fans don't seem to agree with DJ Maphorisa though and feel ghostwriters are meant to be silent parties
DJ Maphorisa has called on his fellow Mzansi artists to give ghostwriters a chance and to give credit where credit is due.
Taking to social media to share his feelings, DJ Maphorisa made it known that ghostwriters deserve to be named and receive the credit they deserve.
“Ehhhhh uoi must credit ghost writers, I don't care even if you pay R10 million, still do the right thing - CREDIT.”
Seeing DJ Maphorisa’s post, fans felt that naming ghostwriters would defeat the purpose of having a ghostwriter. Peeps feel that ghostwriters understand they will not be named and that is what they are paid for.
“Imagine if Drake admitted he has a ghostwriter??? The n*gga didn't even give you enough credit for the work you did for him.”
“Defeats the purpose mara mos.”
“But Dumi Dumi if I credit them they're no longer a 'ghost' writer. Just a writer. Angithi they agree in the first place to remain anonymous.”
Taking to Instagram Live, Phori revealed that he produced Kwesta’s hit song Ngud’. The song went on to become one of the most popular rap songs in the country, however, Phori did not receive a 'thank you' cheque.
Maphorisa expressed that he felt like Kwesta should have given him something to say thank you for the project, even a cash amount of R20 000.
