Nomcebo Zikode Says“I Have Not Been Paid A Cent By The Label for Jerusalema”

On Sunday morning, Jerusalema singer and songwriter, Nomcebo Zikode, spoke up about how the global success of Jerusalema hasn’t translated into money for her.

In a statement shared on her social media platforms, Nomcebo thanked fans for their continued support, and revealed that she allegedly hasn’t received a cent from the record label for Jerusalema.

I have been ridiculed, with efforts to marginalise my contribution. Nomcebo Zikode

“My voice and lyrics have transcended globally, but I still await what is due to me,” she said.

“I have not been paid a cent by the label for Jerusalema despite the song’s global success. I have been ridiculed, with efforts to marginalise my contribution. The continued love and support from the fans of Jerusalema has been my strength and anchor during this difficult time.”

She went on to say that as a female artist, she can’t stay silent on this matter anymore and that it is now with her lawyers.

This comes just two weeks after Sunday World reported that Nomcebo had allegedly been sidelined by her record label, Open Mic Productions.

“She is not getting any bookings, they do not include her in anything, and they lie and blame it on the pandemic, but they have taken her bookings and given them to Zanda and you can quote me on that,” an insider source alleged that this was happening to Nomcebo.

In response to this allegation, Brenden Maseko, who’s a managing partner at Open Mic, told the publication that “at Open Mic, we support and promote each other; there is nothing unusual when Zanda performs Nomcebo’s song.”
