- Simphiwe Dana recently let fans know she had received her royalties cheque from SAMRO
- One of the star's fans jokingly used Simphiwe's lyrics to ask for an e-wallet transfer
- Simphiwe also used the opportunity to advocate for actors to earn royalties the way musicians do
Simphiwe Dana recently gushed about receiving money from the Southern African Music Rights Organisation (SAMRO).
The star would like to see actors also earning royalties the way musicians do.
She said, "I just received from funds from SAMRO. I'll be okay for another month. Bears the question why actors don't have royalties like we do."
A fan used the opportunity to ask the iconic muso for an e-wallet using her lyrics for Simphiwe's hit song, Ndiready.
The fan wrote, "Ndiready for e-wallet ndiphimali. (I'm ready for an e-wallet, give me money.) Themba limbi andinalo. (I don't have any other hope.) Nguw'ithemba lam. (You're my only hope.) Nguwe (You.) Nguwe (You.)"
But we're just glad to see the singer got her money.
In the past, Simphiwe has been vocal about quitting music due to the industry's financial instability.
Last month, Simphiwe Dana made it known that Bamako may be the last album she ever makes.
Fans were taken aback by the news as they would hate to see her leave the game.
The star also recently trended for all the wrong reasons when she called SA men gold diggers.
