“Master KG’s Jerusalema Should Be Recognised As Nomcebo Zikode’s Song”: Ntsiki Mazwai
Ntsiki Mazwai, outspoken feminist and media personality, has droppeddropped another bomb after fueling an inflammatory conversation on Master KG’s song Jerusalema ft Nomcebo Zikode.
According to Ntsiki, the song lacked a recognition of Nomcebo Zikode who did the vocals on it.
She also suggested that Nomcebo should get equal pay as Master KG from the song considering she is the one who wrote the lyrics and sung the song.
Initially, Beverly Ditsie quizzed if the Jerusalema song was not really Nomcebo ft Master KG.
The supposition is that Noncebo deserved to own the musical piece since she wrote and sang the whole song that Master KG only produced.
Ntsiki decided to shade Master KG on her response as she suggested that Nomcebo should have got 50/50 share on the say, and if she doesn’t, Master KG should pay her like a “session artist.”
We’ve so normalized the erasure of black women that it’s happening right in front of our eyes and we don’t blink.
The whole fucking world sings along to a woman’s voice and we don’t even mention her name.
So let’s fix it.
Jerusalema by Nomcebo feat Master KG

International and local public figures usually tag or credit Master KG for the song while little or no acknowledgement is usually given to Nomcebo.
This has resulted in social media giving voice over the matter. But little or no information has been shared by either Master KG, or Nomcebo Zikode – who is signed under Master KG’s record label – as to their agreement behind the song.
Master Kg did the beat
Nomcebo did the vocals.
That’s a a 50/50 split
And I hope master Kg paid her for the session ke since it’s his song only
