US-based Gengetone rapper Hubert Mbuku Nakitare, known as 'Nonini', has relaxed pressure on content creator Brian Mutinda who was ordered to pay him Sh1 million for coyright infringement.

Nonini had given Mutinda a tight deadline to pay the money by Monday 27, after winning the copyright lawsuit against him on Thursday, March 23.

During an interview with Homeboyz Radio, the rapper clarified that there is a legal procedure that needs to be followed and that he understands it could be hard to have the influencer process the payment that quickly.

Nonini had shared a screenshot of one of his fans reminding him that Monday had arrived, but he simply replied in a sarcastic way to show his surprise.

"It's already Monday, I need that by Monday. Okay, let's be serious. There are processes in this case. Twitter is all about banter and everything right? So don't take that seriously. I don't need my money by Monday.

"If somebody approaches me to use my music, even you for instance, I might even give you that song for free. I might not even charge you," Nonini responded to G Money's inquiry about the progress of the payment.

The rapper however added that he will address the same matter today at length via his Instagram account.
