Nomcebo Zikode slams reports of ending dispute with Open Mic Productions.
The singer is one of the artists who have suffered exploitation under the label; despite not being part of the label, she still has an unending conflict that is being handled legally.
Some days ago, it was reported that the two brands had smoked the peace pipe, but the singer through her team labeled the report false and injurious.
“The truth of the matter is that a court order was obtained in late 2022 which ordered Open Mic and Nomcebo to enter into a joint venture agreement and settle the outstanding issues between the two parties,” reads the statement revealed by ZiMoja.
“These outstanding issues were first made public when Nomcebo announced that she had not been paid any of her due royalties from the record-breaking global hit single, Jerusalema, or her project, Xola Moya Wam. This remains the case to date.”
Nom anticipates the finalisation of the matter, so she can move on with her life and career.
“Nomcebo is eagerly awaiting the finalisation of this matter so that she can continue with her recording plans and put out new music to further her career as a recording artist,” explains her manager, Sibo Mhlungu, CEO of IMG Africa. The statement further reads.
“We are unhappy with Open Mic's delay, as we had jointly undertaken to adhere to clearly stipulated timelines on submission of all required information, which remains outstanding, thus prolonging the matter. Should this not be resolved in the coming weeks, we are certain that we'll be going back to court.”
