After the SABC premiered season 2 of The Braai Show with his nemesis Cassper Nyovest in September 2021, the show had tongues wagging as AKA pursued legal action regarding his rights to the show.
The legal documents shared at the time cited AKA had stepped back from the show to deal with “personal reasons” while Cassper continued to claim the rapper had no ownership.
The rapper shared legal documents on his timeline on Monday, revealing he had 50% ownership of the show, saying his decision to pursue litigation was due to principle.
“This matter for me has always been about business principles and asserting my rights to my intellectual property. It is about the injustices that continue to befall us in the creative industry and the violation of our trust by those we work with who continue to exploit us.
“Thus I am happy the arbitration proceedings have found in my favour, that I am a 50% owner of The Braai Show, and that no further exploitation of it can be transacted upon without my involvement.” he wrote.
