The award-winning Xitsonga musician Benny Mayengani is set to #FillUp Peter Mokaba Stadium in Polokwane despite being accused of stealing the popular phrase by local rapper Cassper Nyovest.
Last year, Cassper Nyovest accused Mayengani of stealing his “trademarked” concept. Benny was also threatened with legal action surrounding the trademark rights of Fill Up. However, an independent investigation by TshisaLIVE found that Cassper did not own the trademark and could not take legal action against him at the time
This comes after Benny advertised his Fill Up Giyani Stadium concert using the hashtag made popular by Cassper.
Despite all the drama, Tsonga musician continued to fulfill his dream by filling up the 20000-seater Giyani Stadium, topping the venue’s capacity with 4000 extra fans.
This year April, Benny Mayengani continues to use the phrase and plans to fill up the 46, 000 seater Peter Mokaba Stadium in Polokwane, Limpopo.
Benny plans to fill up Peter Mokaba Stadium with the help from Zodwa Wabantu, Vuyelwa, Mashabela, DJ Tira and Winnie Mashaba.
