- Rumours spread that the artist is indebted to the EFF for assisting her in a court case with her label
- The label had banned her from singing songs she recorded with them
- She was unable to afford legal help and is grateful for the help she received from the party
Fifi Cooper has been hit with rumours stating that she owes the political party, EFF, for rescuing her career after her recent trouble with her record label, Ambitiouz Entertainment.
Julius Malema stepped in to her the rapper when she was served with a court interdict that prevented her from singing the songs she had recorded with them before she left.
Fifi was about to give up her career before Malema’s offer to help.
Briefly.co.za previously reported that thanks to Malema’s legal aid, Fifi was able to file the paperwork.
At this point, her label asked to settle the matter outside of the court.
TimesLIVE reported that many people feel that the EFF’s help was a political move and that she needs to be loyal to the party.
Fifi shot these rumours down by pointing out that Malema and his party helped her, regardless of her feelings towards either one.
While promoters have shied away from her since the court case, the political party has booked her to perform at some of their upcoming events.
The legal action took a toll on her career as well as her emotions.
Fifi also mentioned that she struggled to handle the situation while still staying strong for her son.
The artist faced high legal fees and was unable to afford an advocate as she needed to care for her son and Malema’s offer could not have had better timing.
