According to the record label, Nomcebo did not get approval from them to feature on the album.

According to the Sowetan, Tira confirmed receiving the letter. The publication reports that he said:

"Yes those are some of their demands and I’m responding to all of that so that we can find common ground. I think there was a breakdown of communication between me, Nomcebo and them (Open Mic). I was dealing with Nomcebo a lot, but she was also supposed to finalise things with them." previously reported that Nomcebo Zikode has been called out for recently performing at a packed venue in Venda.
