Nciza's lawyer, Dumisani Motsamai, responded to the widow in writing with a breakdown of Robbie's royalties for November and December 2021, which stated that the amount due was R3 247.13:
"The commencement of the TS Records/ UMG Licensing Agreement up to Q2 of 2023. This R3 247.13 will not be paid to you/ the estate because TS Records advanced R80 000 to you/ the estate in November/ December 2021 for future royalties.
"This amount went towards the recoupment of that advance, and all future royalty payments will be treated the same way until the advance is fully recouped."
Mrs Malinga also alleges that TS Records swindled her husband of the royalties made from his 2015 Orlando Pirates soundtrack, Up The Bucs (Amabhakabhaka), which features the hit song, Yonke Le Ndawo.
