In 2015, YOUNGLEGENDS and FUTURELEGENDZ in CUFFTHESTEEZ
presented experimental project they titled JOHUSTLEBURG which features up and coming artists like Master C, Blaze Beast and Nemesis.

This case was also brought to Emtee’s attention, he shoved it aside and called them losers.

Emetee insisted that he created the word.

But it appears that the word has been around since 2012.

A Twitter handle with the same name mentioned the word.

Emtee also said that someone is threatening to sue him for the use of Johustleburg but he wasn’t prepared to change the title of his record.

Another case which was established by Elton Tinashe Nyariri presented evidence suggesting that the name was trademarked in 2012 as JohustleBurg Apparel.
These things are evidently presented on their website.
According to them the brand was honed and shaped by the City’s vibe, depicting Young and Carefree.

They also presented application for South African Trademark application no 2016/18051 JOHUSTLEBURG in Class 35 in the name of JOHUSTLEBURG APPAREL (PTY) LTD.

Meanwhile, Emtee dared and damned their threats.
In a tweet, he insisted that he’s won’t be changing JOHUSTLEBURG and challenged Whoever that got a problem to come and see him.

Meanwhile, Tinashe Nyariri has forwarded the matter to his legal team for a way forward.
In a press statement released by Nyariri.

“Our company is registered as Johustleburg Apparel and we’ve trademarked the name. He (Emtee) has no right to use the name whatsoever in his songs without talking to us because this will confuse our customers in terms of who is the owner of the brand.

“It will seem like we are selling clothes that belong to Emtee whereby we established our brand a very long time ago (2012). I’ve made Emtee aware 3 days ago (through his management – Dumisani). They are very much aware of what they are doing but they are still going ahead,” said Tinashe Nyariri.

“When we saw the song as a company we actually wanted to endorse him with clothing for his music video so that we could also market our brand. It’s a win-win for both parties but it seems like they actually don’t care. I’ve given him (manager) a proposal yesterday morning (Wednesday) and he has not said anything so far,”  Tinashe Nyariri concluded.

Another claim on the name In 2016,is from Tokollo Magesh Tshabalala who released a song titled Johustleburg.

And finally, the latest claim on the name is Brandan Potgieter.
According to him, he sent some of his merchandise to Emtee hoping he would be supported by the Artist only for the artist to print come up with the brand name.

He wrote this on his Facebook page

“In January I sent some of my stuff to emtee hoping you he supports a local brand. Fast forward the brand grew kancane & next thing his cover art looks exactly like my logo it’s just that tweeted it by removing JHB & added emtee. He already got bread in his mouth, I’m trying to eat.”

Despite all these things Emtee is moving ahead with his plan.
This is not the first time the young rapper is being accused of taking from the up and coming artists.

Emtee was accused of using  AstroNaut _SA (up and coming artist’s) beat from his first song “Mr Loui” released in 2017.

AstroNaut asked Emtee for a feature on (09 February 2018) but he refused to work with him.

Emtee then went on to use his beat on “Blue red light”.

AKA finally speaks out through his legal team on accusation of assaulting his late fiancée, Anele Nelli Tembe.

The rapper plainly said the photos and videos that went viral on social media didn’t detail the full event.

Supa Mega distanced himself from Gender Based Violence and in an official statement shared by TshishaLive, he promises to answer every query.

Rudolph Baloyi, senior associate at Mabuza Attorneys said:

“Mr Forbes takes the current events playing out since this past Sunday seriously. It is regrettable that he and his brand are now associated with GBV. However, he assures his fans and the public that he is not a perpetrator of GBV. In due time he will respond fully to all questions and queries. Currently, the situation is heavy on him and his family as a whole.”

“It is also difficult to deal with public outcry and condemnation on social media. The screenshots from an unreleased video seen over the past weekend online are not a true reflection of the alleged situations that arose on the day.”

AKA still loves his late fiancée according to a statement published last Saturday; he said he’s not a suspect, rather a witness.

Meanwhile, a GBV organization have called out people and streaming platforms to mute the rapper’s song in other to get justice for Anele Tembe.

myeni

Myeni is seeking South African citizenship in the hopes that her children, Nsizwa and Lindeni, can grow up in their father’s home country and learn more about their roots.

Last week, Lindsay said a final goodbye to her late husband, Lindani who was shot dead by Hawaii police last month during an altercation.

Myeni died in hospital after being shot four times by Honolulu police during an altercation that led to his fatal shooting.

Police were responding to an alleged burglary when Myeni who was born and raised in eSikhaleni was shot four times.

Lindsay has expressed gratitude to the South African government for its support, and for providing justice for her husband.

She is now asking them for assistance in giving herself and Lindeni citizenship, as Nsizwa already has citizenship having been born in the country.

“Myself and Lindeni are here on a holiday visa on an American passport, hoping for the South African government to assist us with citizenship,” said Lindsay.

“Since we came back after this horrific incident, we have been staying with Lindani’s family in eSikhaleni. It has been great having their support during this emotional time in our lives. I would like to remain in South Africa to ensure my children live in their home country, learning their roots and speaking Zulu fluently.”

She said the South African government is continuing to look into Lindani’s case.
