MTN settles some outstanding royalties to musos

MTN SA's sales, marketing and distribution executive, Larry Annetts.

According to Composers Authors and Publishers Association (Capasso) CEO Nothando Migogo, the remaining eight percent relates to the alleged disputed songs. “Capasso welcomes this development and is also encouraged by the delivery of 2015 usage reports which were also received from MTN. However, these still don’t indicate all sales made on the MTN platform.

“We are encouraged and hope this signifies the beginning of better engagement with MTN. We, however, still require MTN to take responsibility for all the outstanding copyright liability and to comply with the Copyright Act of South Africa. This means they must enter into a licence agreement with Capasso before they continue to sell Capasso-member music,” Migogo said.

She added that royalties received would be distributed to the rights-holders next month. It was reported recently that MTN SA owed just under R1 million in royalties to musicians, among them some musicians from Alexandra, since 2013.
