Musician Chicco Twala in his dispute with Independent Music Performance Rights Association wants hip hop artist AKA to pay back the money that he got from the organisation. The legendary musician states that him and Super Mega were paid more than they should have received by the association. In a report by Sunday World, Twala sent messages to musicians asking them to pay back they money that they got in 2018.
“AKA, myself and other artists who received a lump sum from IMPRA two years ago, should pay back the money because we did not deserve it, as it was way too much. This was done at the expense other musicians,” says Chicco Twala. He further stated that the auditing process will measure as to how much they should pay back. He reportedly states that some of the artists have to pay back the full amount because they were not played on the radio at the time.
“The top 10 musicians, including myself, was just a scam. Also, note that we did not know that IMPRA was a sham. We all thought the payments were playlist-based until I recently find out how IMPRA operated,” says Chicco Twala. AKA’s management supposedly does not want to comment on the matter until they get the audit.
