Here is what he had to say;

So first of all I haven’t stolen any song and I’ll tell you why I haven’t stolen any song because As’phelelang doesn’t belong to anyone, its public domain,” he said.

“So if you go to SAMRO you’ll see. I did my research even before I recorded the song – I mean this is a song I grew up listening to, it’s a song I grew up singing.”

The Afro-pop star singer also explained that the song which had now become a national hit, he once sung growing up; “Like us as AmaXhosa we go to the mountain; so whenever young boys go to the mountain, the ones that are left behind, sing the song and say ‘asiphelelanga’ … we grew up singing the song.”
