- Mzansi tweeps have shared mixed reactions ever since the news broke that Fakaza leaked AMN
Cassper Nyovest's new album officially dropped a few hours ago but it is already causing a stir on social media. The album titled Any Minute Now dropped on Friday morning, 11 September but a notorious music website dropped it a day before the official release.
Fakaza has been accused on Twitter of leaking the hot album on Thursday, 10 September. The news of the leak was shared by entertainment commentator Phil Mphela. Mphela wrote:
"Imagine celebrating that you are stealing from a local artist. My people mara. Fakaza having Cassper’s album is not something we should be celebrating and promoting."
Tweeps have shared mixed reactions to Mphela's post. Check out some of their comments below:
"South African celebs are weird kodwa. I've learnt about Fakaza a few years ago, our artist knows Fakaza too, but what are they doing? Don't they have a union that represents artists? Why can't they seek legal advice and face Fakaza face-to-face? I saw Tira complaining too about Fakaza."
"You weren’t so vocal when they did it to Nasty C and Vigro Deep. Why is this selective? Are they also not local artists?"
"That is my point daliwam, when Nasty C dropped ZMWSP nobody was vocal about it, it was funny making jokes about it."
"He must get them arrested."
"If Fakaza is such a problem, why don't SA artists come together and track them down and stop them? Clearly Fakaza is a South African platform, probably using a VPN to throw people off. But there are ways to still track them."
In other music news, Briefly.co.za reported that Nasty C's fans took to social media to voice their anger after his album Zulu Man With Some Power got leaked before he dropped it on 28 August.
According to the rapper's fans, the much-anticipated album was leaked online by the same notorious website before the star officially released it. The hashtag #ZuluManWithSomePower trended on Twitter when the Durban-born artist dropped the hot project.
While some fans shared their excitement about Nasty C finally dropping the album, some called for the controversial website to be banned. Some fans called for Fakaza to be shut down:
"Fakaza should be banned," @shmeruda wrote.
"Fakaza must be stopped, at least let the album drop first aowa," an unimpressed @amogelangmolai commented.
