The Jerusalema saga continues with Master KG gearing up for his Jerusalema world tour, but with no Nomcebo Zikode in sight. Instead, Master KG decided to have a replacement and that is songstress Zanda Zakuza.

Instead of trash talking Open Mic Productions, social media users are coming for Zanda Zakuza, who by the way is also signed under the label. Just recently Zanda shared a poster for the upcoming Jerusalema world tour alongside the man himself.

Cities they will touring include Manchester, UK, Dublin, Ireland on the 27th and 29th August. Zanda shared the poster with this caption: “Who’s killing them in the UK? Super excited to be performing at these venues alongside Master KG. I heard that you guys party like rock stars. I can’t wait, washa.”

In the comments section are people saying she is trying to steal Nomcebo's spotlight and that she will never be her.

“No matter what you do, you will never be Nomcebo. You’re not even close to her level,” wrote an angry follower.

Another one defended both the ladies, saying Master KG will regret pitting them against each other, “That boy, Master KG, is still so gullible. But one day he will grow up and hopefully see that what he is doing to Nomcebo right now is so wrong. He mustn’t let his music label, Open Mic, pit him against the one female who has played a pivotal role in his sudden rise to international stardom. And by the way, Zanda is still phenomenal.”

Zanda was aware of the negative comments so she clapped back and said, “Take your anger on another post and say whatever you feel there. Let’s learn to love one another. I’m now tired of explaining and I know you won’t understand.”

Nomcebo issued a statement saying she never received a cent from Jerusalema and that she has alerted her lawyers who are looking into it. "Thank you to all the fans of #Jerusalema, you have made my dreams a reality, with attaining a global hit song. My voice and lyrics have transcended globally, but I still await what is due to me”

"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. I as a female artist, can’t stay silent on this anymore. The matter is now with my lawyers,” her statement reads. 

Speaking to Sunday world, a source confirmed that Nomcebo has not received a cent from her label for Jerusalema, “She has not been paid a cent for Jerusalema. They could not reach an agreement, so Nomcebo had to consult with her lawyers. The record label called her demand ‘ridiculous.’ How is 50% ridiculous? She wrote the lyrics and sang them, he produced the song. That should count for something,” the source says.

Master KG on the other hand said he was tired of the lies, "The Agreement Of Jerusalema Is 50/50 Between Me And Nomcebo But Wants 70% and I Must Get 30%."

"Can you confirm that you received R1.5m so far from Jerusalema? and before I explain many things you guys haven't paid me for Xola Moya Wami...And again, Nomcebo can you tell these people that you are demanding a bigger percentage than mine on this song?"
