AKA Calls Out Ifani & Redds

85f23932e1484ebaaff898d672fa22be

Yesterday, AKA had Twitter buzzing when he called out Ifani & Redds. The rapper was not convinced that the “Shake” rapper’s new album “I Believes In Me” went Gold (20 000 copies) in just over a day claiming the rapper only achieved this feat because iFani’s sponsors (Redds) bought the album from him.

Redds have since denied they bought any copies of the album, but then offered to buy 200 copies of Ifani’s album to give away to the first 200 people to retweet the message.

Although at first it seemed that AKA was hating, he quickly rectified his comments stating that he was not hating, but applauding Ifani & his team on what was a power move which helped the rapper achieve the historic feat in one day.

    Big question is what percentage of that sales goes to the record label. I heard that artists get less than 10% of wholesale to stores, so say 10% of R45 (wholesale CD price) = R4.50 x 20 000 = R90 000, but he only gets that if he did not first have to pay for his music video or studio time or marketing or photo-shoots etc etc get deducted. While there record label gets R810 000 hahaha … Why they fighting each other, when the real skelm is the label. Can someone really breakdown that economics and the current percentage splits with labels. let me know. Peace, Emile YX?
