Renowned producer Rich Mahogany has taken a stand against fellow artist and producer DJ Maphorisa, accusing him of exploiting emerging artists within the music industry.

Mahogany, known for his immense reputation in the South African music industry and the entertainment space as a whole, did not hold back in expressing his strong disapproval.

The controversy began when DJ Maphorisa went live on Instagram and made a shocking statement. He claimed that any artist using his resources to record music automatically forfeits ownership of the music to him.

“When you record music in my computer, my studio, and my electricity, that sh*t is mine, it belongs to me, you must understand that one,” Phori boldly declared. He further emphasized, “So you must understand when you work in somebody’s studio, that sh*t is not yours.”

In response, Rich Mahogany came to the defense of artists, highlighting the struggles they face due to their lack of resources. He questioned DJ Maphorisa’s stance, asking, “Are these kids suffering because they can’t afford their own equipment and food? Am I hearing him correctly, or is Jukulyn playing tricks on me?”

Rich Mahogany didn’t stop there. He condemned DJ Maphorisa for what he perceived as selfishness and expressed his disappointment in the fellow producer’s work ethic. “How can you openly admit to exploitation like that, live on mabaleng, and be proud of it? It’s not just disappointing; it’s plain disgusting. Shame on you!” Mahogany added.

DJ Maphorisa has undoubtedly played a significant role in elevating the South African music industry. He has collaborated with numerous high-profile artists and produced chart-topping music.

Phori’s influence is evident in the current surge of Amapiano, a popular genre in South Africa. However, it is crucial to question whether the majority of artists he has worked with actually retain ownership of their master recordings or if they exchanged their masters for studio time and sustenance.
