Sis Gugu claims that Amapiano musicians have stolen from Tik Tok creators.
The socialite grieved on Twitter, pleading with the musicians to give credit where credit is due.
“Everytime there’s a trend created by “regular people”, it ends up on a piano track. Hamba Ha, Re squeezeng, Inganekwane etc- I never see those creators in these credits or videos. Artists are stealing from unknown creators & we’re not speaking up for them. Please credit the kids,” she wrote.
I’ve seen this so many times and it’s getting weird. They credit their fellow celebs but let it be a regular kid from the hood, with small numbers, nobody credits or defends them. They complain about piracy but they do the same to smaller artists? No man.

” I just need piano artists to give credit to tik tokkers because if we’re being honest, it’s the same creators that catapult their songs on that platform. Do better,” she concluded.
