DJ SBU FAKE COVER LANDS HIM A FEATURE IN FORBES



Forbes Africa Person Of The Year Nominee & one out of 100 most influential people in Africa are just some of the titles under this celebrated Dj. Famed for his hit song Lengoma Dj Sbu is a household name in S. Africa's house music. The decks man was recently in a legal battle with monthly business magazine Forbes Africa after a fake cover of him appearing on the magazine did rounds on social media.
On 23rd March 2015 Forbes Africa released a press statement warning people of the fake cover stating that it was an infringement of trademark & unauthorized use of brand name & logo. The cover showed Dj Sbu whose real name is Sbusiso Leope holding his energy drink called MoFaya which is his new business venture.
Social media was a buzz with concerned fans expressing their thoughts on the issue as some considered it a marketing strategy. Sbu is currently under suspension at Metro FM where he works for apparently promoting his energy drink on stage at the Metro FM Awards.
The issue was resolved amicably on 25th March 2015 with another press release from Forbes Africa stating that Dj Sbu admitted that he did not create the image and had agreed to take down the image from his social media platforms. As part of the amicable resolution Sbu's MoFaya energy drink was featured in Forbes USA a pretty good deal if you ask me. The Dj even took to twitter and wrote "Both parties walk away happy and another relationship has been built. Left them with a cold case."
