Shebeshxt unhappy with DJ Maphorisa over ‘Thweka’song royalties

Shebeshxt calls out DJ Maphorisa over music rights

It’s about to get tense after Shebeshxt did a tell-all about his experience working with DJ Maphorisa.

In an interview on the L-Tido Podcast, the Limpopo revealed that not only is he being kept in the dark about the royalties for their song, Thwerka, but he also heard it on the release day like other fans and not exclusively.


Shebeshxt told L-Tido that he has a lot of respect for Porry, but his shadiness made him question the kind of businessman he is.

Moreover, the rapper said he needs more knowledge of the music business, saying the royalties aren’t as important to him.

Phori received backlash after disclosing that artists who record in his studio forfeit their music rights to him.

Seeing that Thwerka was recorded in Maphorisa’s studio, it’s evident that Shebe should kiss those royalties goodbye.

Twitter (X) user VnatorB shared a short clip from the full interview:

“I don’t like sugarcoating stuff, I tell the truth, and people hate me for that. I respect him a lot, and I’m not saying I want the split sheets; I just need knowledge.

“I’d be happy if people like him would teach us how the music business works because when they don’t guide us, you start doubting them and yourself.”

Netizens are stunned by Shebe’s revelations and called DJ Maphorisa out on his shady business dealings.

Previously, Shebe put Focalistic on blast for not properly acknowledging him for performing at his event, saying he felt under-appreciated:
