Amapiano star DJ Maphorisa says he owns the masters of any song recorded in his studio.
A few years back, during an online back-and-forth with Prince Kaybee, DJ Maphorisa claimed he owned all his masters and criticized Kaybee for not owning his. The famous hitmaker has also been in the news this year for getting back together with his ex-girlfriend, Thuli P.
Porry has everyone talking about him again. He appeared in a Live video and stated that he owns the masters of any song recorded in his studio with his equipments and lights. Social media users were stunned by this revelation and took to the platform to react.
One user wrote, “I’ve been explaining this to broers also. yall told us Phori’s crib is full of studios in almost every room, and that’s fire but it also means he owns the IP… no knock on Phori, he’s a legend but yall gotta know this.”
Another user also reacted to the statement,
“His thing of Phori needs people who understand how the music industry operates. Maybe if they can break it down for us, we would understand. Who owns and who doesn’t own what? When does “featuring” who who comes in?”
