DJ Maphorisa and Prince Kaybee twar over masters
Local music producers DJ Maphorisa and Prince Kaybee got into a twar over masters ownership on Monday.
According to MixButton, a master recording is the official original recording of a song, sound or performance. The owner of said masters is then able to licence music for third parties such as TV, film, commercial adverts and even sampling of a song.
The "Lorch" producer's rant kicked off after a Twitter user posted a picture of Kabza De Small and said that he looks like a 40-year-old drunkard.
Maphorisa then responded and said "Futsek mind ur f*cken business".

Following this tweeps criticized his response and he clapped back to their criticisms.

This led to the "Phoyisa" hitmaker sharing that Prince Kaybee, Lady Zamar and Mafikizolo don't own the masters for their music.
While Kabza De Small, Samthing Soweto and himself are in position of their masters.

Fans weren't impressed with response and quickly jumped into his mentions to correct him.
He was talking about masters not other business interests. If you wanted to comment you should have commented about what he was saying.. Simple— Lufuno🍉🍉🍉 (@Tsepo202020) February 24, 2020

The "Nana Thula" responded to Prince Kaybee's tweet and said he was missing the point.

This comes after rumours were floating around that the two power music producers had beef with the "Gugulethu" hitmaker squashing it and saying that they are brothers.
