“Record labels have been exploiting artists for so long. Fuck you @UMG. We will meet in court. I am enough. Bring your best lawyers. I’m only bringing the truth. You want my blood?” questioned Simphiwe Dana.
Simphiwe Dana said that Universal Music wants her to give them her past albums.
“They (Universal Music) want me to give them my past albums. Because they failed to market my current album, Bamako. So now it’s my fault. Usana olungathethiyo lufela embelekweni. At this point, I have not gone to lose,” said Simphiwe Dana.
The singer has accused Universal Music of not knowing how to promote her latest album Bamako.
