Master KG has reportedly filed letters of demand pertaining to licence fees for the illegal commercial use of his viral hit single “Jerusalema”.
This comes after the hit single started a global dance wave under the #JerusalemaChallenge which saw the creation of dance videos from music fans to large brand houses.
Warner International, under which Master KG is cosigned, has reportedly sent out letters of demand of royalties to organisations that have allegedly used the single and the dance challenge for brand advertising and promotions.
According to DW, a Warner spokesperson from Warner Germany stated that individuals would not be fined or need to obtain a license to use “Jerusalema” as part of the challenge in Germany, Austria and Switzerland.
However, fans said Master KG is suppose to sue president Cyril Ramaphosa because he is the one who encouraged all South Africans to participate in the challenge, by posting videos of themselves dancing to the song on social media.
