DJ Maphorisa: 'iWalk ye Phara' wasn't stolen, TDK Macassette's claims are 'laughable'
Local gqom producer DJ Maphorisa is refuting claims that "iWalk ye Phara" was stolen from gqom newbie Thandeka "TDK Macassette" Mkhwanazi after she claimed he did.
This comes after DJ Maphorisa released a second version of the song which excluded TDK Macassette, and replacing her with Moonchild Sanelly.
However, DJ Maphorisa says that TDK Macassette claims are laughable and he is unbothered by the whole situation.
Speaking the Move Magazine, DJ Maphorisa said that he was the one that put her on and that she's "acting crazy" now.
“The world is so crazy. I gave her an opportunity and now she is acting like she is the biggest thing."
When talking about DJ Maphorisa, TDK Macassette did not mince words saying "Maphorisa can’t even make a gqom beat. How can he make a gqom song?”
This comment seems to very pointed in her tone even though DJ Maphorisa has produced hits such as "Suited" by Shekinah, "Ngud'" by Kwesta and Drake's hit single "One Dance."
“How many hits have I produced? I mean I really don’t understand this. How long has she been in the industry and how long have I been making hits?", he said.
While TDK Macassette is not commenting further on the matter, DJ Maphorisa is daring her to take him to court wanting her to provide proof that the song is hers.
“She can take me to court if she wants to. Where is the proof that the song is actually hers? I’ve put everything out there on social media proving that the song is indeed mine, that’s all,”
