Nasty C’s music is booming and keeping most peeps dancing!!! However, the legal battle is keeping the rapper sweating and without space to breathe.
The rapper who’s signed up with an international recording label is at risk of losing his stage name and might have to cough up R4.5-million in damages to Freeworld Music for breach of contract and unpaid services.
This is how Nasty C got himself tied up in the NASTY legal battle:
As we all know the young rapper was signed with Mabala Noise and signed a few contracts with them. One of the contracts he signed mandated Freeworld Music to offer services and they were entitled to 25% of all the revenue generated by Nasty C’s performances and deals, and the artist was to get a 50% share from the proceeds.
Whilst Mabala Noise was entitled to receive the remaining 25% as part of the agreement. Well, that was until the rapper decided to make bookings on his own, of which Mabala Noise did not inform Freeworld Music about the artist’s decision.
The court paper states that Mabala Noise failed to defend itself and has moved from their premises making it difficult to serve them with the default judgment.
To make things worse Freeworld Music has now been granted permission by the court to serve the papers using the Mabala Noise social media handles. Meaning y’all should keep an eye as the twitter streets are about to be messy.
What was the judgment granted?
Well, both the Zulu Man With Some Power and his former record label Mabala Noise have been ordered to pay R4.5-million in damages to Freeworld Music for breach of contract and unpaid services. The recording company and rapper have also been ordered to stay away from using Nasty C as his stage name because he does not own the naming rights.
What a mess!!! Question is should he change his stage name, will you still be a fan? Drop your comment on the comment box below.
