Black Major Music Agency, which manages DJ Lag said that they were handling the matter with DJ Megan Ryte’s team.
Instead of addressing the allegations, the alleged thief Megan Ryte decided to close the comments section on her YouTube channel due to the fact that South Africans were calling her out.
Our deep throat who spoke on condition of anonymity and privy to the situation told MGOSI.co.za that Black Major is indeed “handling” the allegations of intellectual property theft by DJ Megan Ryte.
“They are busy in talks with her team to try and reach common ground. Before that can be achieved nothing will be said until they reach a resolution with her team,” said our deep throat.
On Wednesday DJ Lag offered his own take in DJ Megan Ryte’s sharing of her new tune, sharing a snippet of the song, including voicing out that “In our tradition respect comes first. Ice Drop is our CULTURE.”
The accused thief, Megan Ryte has yet to issue a response to the backlash received from South Africans.
Our mole has informed us that a statement might be issued before the weekend should they reach a common ground with Megan Ryte’s management.
DJ Lag has become the poster boy for Durban’s rapidly growing gqom scene. In late 2016 he teamed up with London label Goon Club Allstars to drop a self-titled EP of four relentless club tracks, a perfect introduction to the bass-heavy sound of gqom.
DJ Lag’s Ice Drop is currently on more than 400k views on YouTube since 2017. Meanwhile, Megan Ryte’s Culture is on more than 2-million views since November 20, 2020.
