Nomcebo Zikode took to Twitter on Saturday, 10 July 2021, to confirm allegations that she is supposedly being snubbed by Open Mic Records for her contribution to Master KG’s hit song, Jeruselama. A couple months earlier, it was rumoured that Zikode and Open Mic were at loggerheads. A promoter alleged that the record company was dissuading bookers from booking Zikode, in favour of Zanda Zakuza.

Zikode, in corroborating the aforementioned, claimed that she has not been paid royalties for reportedly writing the song, as well as he vocal contribution. In her statement, she wrote, “I have not been paid a cent by the label for Jerusalema despite the song’s global success. I have been ridiculed, with efforts to marginalise my contribution.”

In light of the backlash, Open Mic Records released a subsequent statement on Sunday, 11 July 2021, addressing the matter. First, it stipulated that no one has received the royalties from the song, as they are allegedly still waiting for Zikode to sign the split deal. Moreover, the statement alluded to Zikode being the problematic party, claiming that she is calling for a 70/30 split in her favour, despite her being the featured artist.
