Yvonne Chaka Chaka wants Chicco Twala to recognise her contribution to her song

Yvonne Chaka Chaka, the renowned South African singer, has called on Chicco Twala to recognize her contribution to one of her songs. Yvonne, known for her iconic hits and significant impact on the music industry, feels that her involvement in the song has not been adequately acknowledged by Chicco Twala, a prominent musician and producer.

The specifics of the song in question and the nature of her contribution have not been detailed, but Yvonne’s request highlights an ongoing issue in the music industry where artists often seek proper recognition and credit for their work. Acknowledging her contribution is important not only for her legacy but also for ensuring that all artists receive due credit for their creative efforts.

This call for recognition by Yvonne Chaka Chaka is a reminder of the need for transparency and fairness in the music industry, where collaboration and contributions should be properly credited to uphold the integrity and respect of all involved parties.

The song from Chaka Chaka’s Thank you Mr DJ album was released in 1987 and composed by musician and record producer Sello ‘Chicco’ Twala and producer and music writer Attie van Wyk. During an interview on Newzroom Afrika, Chaka Chaka known as the “Princess of Africa,’ said that she was never credited for her “Everybody” part in the song.

She said that Twala cheated her by not listing her as the co-composer of the song. The song is listed as being produced and composed by Chicco Thwala and Attie Van Wyk. “Umqombothi was written by Chicco, but I added some elements to it. I added that Nawu! Nawu! Madoda and Everybody parts. I have never received a cent from that project. They didn’t credit me, and back then, I was young and clueless about the music industry. This is the first time I’m speaking out about this,” she said.
