Cassper Nyovest and DJ Sumbody's legal battle has taken a new twist. The long-time friends are involved in a nasty court battle over royalties.
Mufasa apparently owes the DJ about R150 000 in royalties for their 2018 collaboration, Remote Control. Sumbody reportedly obtained a court order instructing the rapper to pay him R147 000 in royalties.
ZAlebs reports that the track, which was on high rotation on radio and TV, also got a deal with Samsung. City Press reports that DJ Sumbody shared his side of the story via his spokesperson Palesa Dwaba of Tailormade Legal Solutions.
"The matter was withdrawn from the roll a day before going to trial, owing to a request from Cassper’s side that a negotiated settlement be reached so he would not lose his Samsung endorsement. Once this was agreed to, his management signed the settlement agreement and then went on to ignore and violate it shortly thereafter," the statement reads.
