Rapper AKA announced on Monday that the arbitration proceedings have determined that he owns half of the Braai Show.
This comes after AKA’s management served the SABC with a legal letter back in 2021 demanding that they stop the scheduled airing of the Braai Show with Cass.
Several reports claimed AKA was not consulted for approval as co-owner and executive producer of the show. It is said that production made an offer to Cassper without his knowledge.
Among other demands, AKA demanded a 50% entitlement as joint copyright owner to all the proceedings in relation to the show. This includes proceeds from the channel.
When he announced his triumph, AKA said it’s always been about asserting his right to his intellectual property.
“This matter for me has always been about business principles and asserting my right to my intellectual property. It’s about the injustices that continue to befall us in the creative industry and the violation of our trust by those we work with, who continue to exploit us,” he said in part.
