Slikour denies ever paying Nota for anything
Slikour defended himself, telling TimesLIVE that Nota's story is implausible because social media was new when he worked with Nota. He said:
"I don't think you could even have a job on social media at the time. He never had an employment contract or anything of that sort."
The singer of the classic track, Kholwa, further explains that he and Nota have come a long way. Slikour admitted that he exchanged content ideas with Nota, but that this is something everyone does to grow their career.
Both Slikour and Nota played a role in starting 'Ngud hitmaker, Kwesta's career and Slikour claims that Nota "made millions off Kwesta".
Slikour also denied the claims that he exploited the group Skwatta Kamp, saying:

"Skwatta Kamp is not signed or managed by me. They are independent artists. I'm just helping to distribute the music."
Slikour suggests that there is more to the story, as he warned Nota:
"He must pursue this lawsuit, and he will expose things that he doesn't want to expose in a court of law."
Fans of Slikour and Nota have each taken a side
Slikour blocked Nota on Twitter and Nota's supporters saw this as a sign of guilt.
"I've always known there was something off with this Slikour guy. Nota just confirmed it !!"
"In our industry, we've normalised doing favors to a point, it cripples us when we venture in business. Grinding and seeking an opportunity is not a stairway for people to exploit us!"
Some who reacted to Nota do not believe that he is a victim of exploitation.

Slikour hopes to settle the debate in a court of law and Nota is eager to do the same.
