Musicians put in their time, money, blood, sweat and tears into recording and producing that one hit or more - not only for their fans but to make a living as well. But there seems to be that one hurdle they all have to face - illegal downloads from illicit websites who put out their music for free.
A fan directly tweeted Fakaza (one of THOSE websites) claiming that the site is destroying musicians and their brands and as a result; starving the entertainment industry and eventually collapsing it.
Websites such as the one mentioned above do this by leaking music before it released onto the legal mainstream platforms such as Apple music.
The fan went on to mention a few celebrities, including DJ Maphorisa.
As a global hit-maker, DJ Maphorisa says that he is not affected by that at all. Maphorisa is known for not holding his tongue on any troll or situation that involved him. So, naturally, he reponded and said: "Not mine bro."
The conversation and debate around this matter has been ongoing for the longest time and every musician who has been directly affected by piracy has gone on a rant or two. Fans who purchase or stream music legally are always in defense and ready to call those who use Fakaza (and the likes) out.
Maphorisa then tweeted that there are two people in the world, Android and iPhone users. Whichever way these people use to get their music does not matter to him because at the end of it all, he stays winning.
Tweeps were pretty impressed at the level of understanding he has when it comes to this pressing issue.
