Musa Keys slapped with R700K bill by Ingrooves
Mzansi celebs have been in a court war with their record labels this year, and Musa Keys is one of them. The amapiano star was dragged to court after being slapped with an R700K bill by Ingrooves for allegedly breaching their contract agreement.
According to Sunday World, the Johannesburg High Court ordered Ingrooves to pay R463,050.30. This is after they have been in court after the music distributor shared that Musa Keys signed a deal with them in April 2021, and the DJ gave a notice to cancel the agreement in May 2022.
In court papers that were read by the publication, it is stated that Musa Keys's notice of cancellation was found to be invalid:
"Metadata in digital form contains details pertaining to sound recordings and/or cinematographic films, encompassing information like artist, author, and composer names, artist biographies, album titles, song names, and record company names.
“This encompasses album descriptions, song lyrics, pricing details for individual tracks and the entire album, concert information, music genre, and any additional elements necessary for Ingrooves respondent's digital distribution as specified in the distribution agreement.”
