The popular Limpopo man Johannes Gopane from Marumofase village shared in an interview with Thobela FM that he hasn’t received a cent for the “haa, hoo” lion song, following his viral interview with the SABC.

He added in the interview that he’s not expecting 100% profit from the music producer but some share because his voice made the song popular.

“They should’ve approached me first and asked for my permission to use my face on the shirts and my voice on the song. For example, if the music producer received R3000 from the song, I should’ve gotten R1000 something.”
