Lindokuhle Msomo affectionately known to many as Intaba Yase Dubai, is quitting music after being embroiled in a royalties drama with his disgraced stable Ambitiouz Entertainment.

The stable trended last week again following rumours of exploitation. This follows after Intaba Yase Dubai claimed the label pays him R3,700 per month. Ever since he made those shocking claims, they have been exchanging words on social media and the drama is endless.

Taking to its social media accounts, Ambitiouz debunked claims that he gets compensated R3, 700 per month and even went as far as dropping the receipts. According to numerous proof of payments shared via social media, the musician has received payments ranging from R42.782,62 and R20.000.00, to mention a few.

In a post on his Facebook account, Intaba Yase Dubai said he had worked hard for the money and that the proof of payments were from his gigs.
The musician shook the entire country last week after taking to his social media accounts to vent about not being compensated for his feature on Big Zulu's smash hit song Imali Eningi.

This song featuring him and Riky Rick became a national anthem after it was released in 2021. It even sparked a viral challenge that saw the likes of Duduzane Zuma even partaking in it, but now, it turns out Intaba Yase Dubai was not paid for the fruits of his labor.

He stated that despite the song's 12 million streams, he didn't smell even a R1.
“Nothing in this world beats the pain of watching another man gain a lot of money from your hard work, while you are broke. I’m sorry but I hate features with all of my heart. Coz you have to act like we are all ok while only an individual is…” he claimed. “Mali Eningi has reached over 12 Million streams. But I’m broke. Never got even R1.”

Big Zulu came out guns blazing to clear his name. He clarified that they paid his record label Ambitiouz Entertainment to compensate him for his share.

"My record label did everything in the right way. He knows who he signed what with who so he should go to his record label Ambitiouz Entertainment and ask them about this. My record label is not involved in this," he wrote separately as he shared his statement.

"As Inkabi Records we would like to declare that all due diligence, agreements, splits and contracts pertaining to Mali Eningi was handled with the label that Intaba Yase Dubai is signed to, which is Ambitiouz Entertainment, this was done in the early staged if the song being released."

Moreover, he said Nkabi Records paid the disgraced stable R94, 527, 31 over three payments between November 5th and February 11th.

"AE have fulfilled it's obligation and paid Intaba Yase Dubai his portion of the proceeds received from IR as per the existing artist agreement between the label and Intaba Yase Dubai and confirms no royalty payment is outstanding." They then enrolled SAMRO and announced that the company was going to pay further publishing rights to Intaba Yase Dubai.
