Legendary music producer Sello “Chicco” Twala has added fuel to the fire again this week, when he challenged all the artists “to pay back the money” they had received from collecting society, the Music Performance Rights Association (Impra), two years ago.

In 2018, Twala was one of the beneficiaries who received a lump sum for the needletime royalties from Impra which is led by Dodo Monamodi.

The figures were never disclosed publicly.
