There’s more noise around the song John Vul’igate. And this point, two brothers are fighting over the rightful owner of the song.

Ndivhuwo Nephawe (26) has accused his brother, McMillan “Man Malaya” of stealing the track.

Man Malaya may be a member of the Amapiano duo Mapara A Jazz, alongside Leonard “Lenny Sbechu” Malatji.

Ndivhuwo, who may be a member of Scara Chilli Ya Baba, claimed the duo stole the song in July once they visited their studio to concentrate to a music project.

He said he almost fought together with his group members, who thought he gave the song to his brother.

“Yes, he’s my brother, but this is often business. We won’t allow them near our studios again,” he said.

Ndivhuwo’s fellow group member, Dominic “Matanta” Baloyi (46), claimed Mapara A Jazz stole their beat concept and therefore the file with the vocals.

“We wrote the song alongside Ntosh Gazi. The duo is within the limelight due to our song.

“They should stop performing and telling people it’s their song. The matter is within the hands of our legal team,” he said.

On the opposite hand, Ntosh, whose real name is Ntokozo Soko, said: “This is my song. I came up with the concept and was alleged to collaborate with Scara Chilli Ya Baba and Mapara A Jazz on the song.

“I made the song trend due to my popularity.”

But Man Malaya said the blokes were bitter and jealous of their success.

“Where were all of them this time? Why are they complaining now because the song is big?” he asked.

He said although they recorded the song at Scara Chilli Ya Baba’s studios, it had been theirs.

Scara Chilli Ya Baba has also opened a case against Mapara a Jazz.

Gauteng police spokesman Captain Mavela Masondo confirmed that a case of theft was opened at Olievenhoutbosch police headquarters .
