SABC Owes Millions In Unpaid Royalties

The South African Broadcasting Corporation (SABC) on Wednesday announced that they are “behind with royalty payments”. The Public Broadcaster announced that they owe artists at least R75.4m

The SABC revealed that it owes the Southern African Music Rights Organisation (Samro) R14.5m, the SA Music Performance Rights Association (Sampra) R52.7m, the Association of Independent Record Companies (ARIC) R2.8m, the Composers Authors and Publishers Association (Capasso) R3m and the Recording Industry of South Africa (Risa) R2.4m.

The SABC also failed to pay all artists, winners and contributors for the 2017 Metro FM Awards held months ago.
