Josiah Mphono, who is the boss of Best By Far Entertainment, claims that Kabza has broken the terms of a contract they signed in 2016 on a number of occasions and now the label owner is taking his story to the streets.
Kabza De Small, who is widely seen as one of the leaders of the Amapiano movement, is being accused of betraying Josiah by taking his music to DJ Maphorisa's label without his permission. Kabza has even teamed up with Maphorisa on an EP and a subsequent national tour for 2 months! But Best By Far Entertainment is coming to collect!
Speaking to Sunday World over the course of this past weekend, Josiah claimed that Kabza was "playing him like a fool" and is demanding that the DJ from Mpumalanga pay his dues for breaching his contract. Josiah further explained that Kabza has also released two of is biggest songs, Umshove and Shaya Amabele under other labels without considering his contract at Best By Far Entertainment.
"I organised a meeting where he admitted to his mistakes and made a commitment to release his next album with us and I believed him," shared Josiah. However, Kabza appeared to backtrack on his word (not for the first time seemingly) and decided to partner up with DJ Maphorisa this year, upsetting his label owner even further. He explained to Sunday World:
"On or about April 26 this year I learnt that Kabza De Small produced songs that were supposed to be released under Maphorisa's stable, Blaqboy Music, and tried to release them through Platoon and iTunes. I wrote to these platforms and asked them not to release the songs and gave them reasons and they agreed not to"
While we have no evidence of this encounter, Josiah claims that when he tried to speak to DJ Maphorisa about the entire debacle, the hitmaker threatened to fight him.
Kabza De Small and DJ Maphorisa are said to be preparing their side of the story in the coming weeks but this is one particular beef we are going to keep an eye on.
