EFF leader Julius Malema has pledged his support to help rapper Fifi Cooper fight a court ruling that prevents her from performing any of the songs she recorded under Ambitiouz Entertainment.
Fifi and several other artists left the record label last year under a huff over contractual disputes. The label later released a statement explaining that the matter would be going to court.
On Monday, Ambitiouz Entertainment released a statement announcing it had secured a court interdict that prevented Fifi from performing her songs and claiming to own her songs. She will also have to pay copyright, as well as legal, fees.
Ever since, there has been a huge outcry on social media over the fiasco, with fans calling for a boycott of the label.
Julius stepped in on Tuesday, labelling the situation an injustice to Fifi.
Taking to Twitter, the EFF said that it had contacted the rapper and would be helping her fight the label.
“We have contacted Fifi with the willingness to help her fight back against the corrupt and exploitative record company,” read part of the tweet.
We have seen the injustice caused on Fifi Cooper by Ambitious Entertainment which is politically associated with the corrupt North West Premier, Supra Mahumapelo. We have contacted Fifi with the willingness to help her fight back against the corrupt & exploitative record company!

Julius later shared pictures of himself with Fifi on social media, saying that a legal team had been assembled to fight the matter on her behalf.
“We are always on the side of the weak and the dejected. Wipe your tears African Girl, very soon you will sing your beautiful songs again. Proper legal team is assembled to help #FifiCooper against the powerful,” he said.
