Singer and songwriter Bruce Leigh has accused Gqom sensation TDK Macassette of stealing her song.

The musician, whose real name is Luyanda Shelembe, claims TDK’s single Mashobana may be a butchered version of her last year song, uQekeqe.

Speaking to Daily Sun, Luyanda’s manager, Tshepo Nhlabatse, said: “We were made conscious of the infringement of copyright late last year when TDK performed the song.

“We looked it abreast of all social media digital platforms, but couldn’t find it until she recently dropped Mashobana, which is our song.

“She only changed the verses and therefore the beat, but the chorus is that the same as our song.”

Tshepo said when he approached TDK, whose real name is Thandeka Mkhwanazi, she asked him to send her an email, but never responded.

“Last Friday, I called TDK and told her the song was infringing on our copyright.

She asked me to send her an email but never responded.

“She blocked my calls and blocked me on social media,” he claimed.

“Luyanda also tried calling her and that they had a fight over the phone.

“She also blocked her.”

Tshepo said they spent tons of your time and money promoting their music.

“It’s devastating, especially because it’s a Black doing this to a different black child while we’re trying to grow in an industry that’s already saturated.”

Tshepo told the People’s Paper they were getting to take action.

“We’ll meet our lawyers and determine exactly the way to affect this example,” he said.

Responding to the allegations, TDK Macassette said she recorded the song last year.

“The song was recorded in February 2019 and that they released theirs in May, so mine was recorded and released way before theirs,” she said.

“I’ve been performing the song since last year and that i work way too hard for somebody to undertake and use my brand to market a song that doesn’t sound an equivalent in terms of lyrics, rhythm, or instrumentals.

“This year has been filled with negativity and that i wouldn’t say something I don’t have proof of.”

She added that if BruceLeigh felt disappointed that she says she took her song when the song doesn’t sound an equivalent .
