Rihanna shone the light on Gqom music after she used a local song by Busiswa Gqulu as a soundtrack to one of her Fenty beauty adverts…

The only issue was that the song was a remake – a shady move to avoid paying her royalties, claims the South African singer.

The remake of the song Midnight Starring – a collab between Busiswa and Maphorisa – was used in the clip advertising Fenty foundations.

“Nah.@fentybeauty just used a REMAKE of Midnight Starring with my voice, to avoid paying us for it. I’m sad but it’s the game I guess”, tweeted the award-winning singer.

Maphorisa also tweeted out his frustration, claiming the Diamonds singer had ‘cut and paste’ his work.

And SA tweeps were just as annoyed, demanding the US singer cough up for the creative use of her work.

Earlier this month, fans also defended Jerusalema singer Nomcebo after a Bulgarian woman did a remake of the song on a TV talent show – in blackface!
