Master KG Demands Royalties for Jerusalema Use
The phenomenon that was the Jerusalema challenge might soon be a nightmare to corporates. According to reports, Master KG’s record label, Warner, has demanded license fees for the use of the song in marketing videos. Private persons will be exempted from this, but the situation will be handled differently if “there is an advertising or image-promoting effect in favor of an institution, organization or company.”
“We will start politely [asking for fees] locally because we have seen there has been a lot of skipping of the line. We do owe it, not just to Open Mic [Warner’s partner], but to the people who were part of it”, said Dumisani Motsamai, Warner’s legal counsel in a statement.
“I saw brands where you would see a drone showing a view of a company yard, then you will see their workshop, they dish out products, they make sure they give you a picture of every product they sell. The song is playing in the background, and because it is playing in the background, now I have an interest in seeing what this particular company is doing,” he added.
Jerusalema has been streamed over 96 million times on Spotify, topped Shazam’s global searches and garnered over 340 million YouTube views – becoming the most watched African video on the platform in under two years since its release.
