Gemini Major To Take Legal Action Against Cape Town City FC Over ‘Mayo’ Song Usage. Cape Town City Football Club’s usage of the song Mayo by DJ Speedsta featuring Yung Swiss, Tellaman, Shane Eagle and Frank Casino in a video clip shared on social media, has sparked outrage amongst the artists who worked on the hit song. Gemini Major who produced the 2016 track has also voiced his dissatisfaction with the football club.
The football club in a now-deleted video clip used the beat to Mayo in the background. The video was used as a way of announcing their new player signing, Khanyisa Mayo. The clip shows Khanyisa on his phone with a jar of mayonnaise next to him, whilst a track that sounds like Mayo plays in the background. DJ Speedsta first pointed out that the video was using his song without permission and asked the club to take down the video.
DJ Speedsta later gave his followers an update that a different version of the song was replayed for the club’s announcement. “Update: A different version that was replayed was used for their announcement,” read in part DJ Speedsta’s tweet.
Well, Gemini Major is not bothered by whether the song was replayed or removed and has informed the football club that they would be hearing from his legal team. “You’ll be hearing from the legal team shortly, weather you removed it or replayed it, still my shit !!” he tweeted. Cape Town FC has since removed the video clip from their social platforms.
