How do music royalties work in South Africa?
Mechanical royalties are paid to the writers and the publishers of a song. If you wrote or co-wrote on a song & that song ends up on an album, compilation CD (like NOW) & gets streamed on Apple & Spotify, then you are owed a mechanical royalty from CAPASSO.
