fresh suits against Timi Dakolo is allegedly being filed at the court against ‘Wish me well’ crooner by Majek Fashek’s reps sued for copyright infringements.
According to recent reports, Timi Dakolo may be getting sued for copyright infringement over stealing songs of Majek Fashek. This follows the 2016 report where Timi Dakolo first got accused by the Nigerian reggae legend Majek Fashek of the same allegation which Timi Dakolo refuted the claims.
The suit, it is said, will be filed by Majek’s representatives after their return from the United Kingdom towards the end of March 2017. Timi Dakolo, however, has maintained, with documents to show, that he has fulfilled all necessary protocols pertaining to legal permission, by seeking the consent of Fashek’s reps before remaking the hit song in 2012. Uzoma, Majek’s manager however maintains they will be meeting in court.
“We are not taking this case lightly. We are just awaiting the arrival of our solicitors from the U.S and the UK then we will hit the courts. For crying out loud, this guy is making money from itunes and he did what he did because he thinks in Nigeria, anything goes. If he can prove as he claimed that he paid for the use of the song and he can show concrete proof of it then he will go free, but if not, we will definitely meet in court.”
Timi, in 2016, reacting to the accusations, in an Instagram post, had said.
“I paid his manager to remake the song, I have my invoice, I even mentioned to him during our rehearsals at the Headies. So, honestly I don’t understand this write-up.”
When asked his next line of action, Dakolo was quoted to have said, “I don’t want to [talk about it anymore]. I have so much respect for these people. I have never performed that song anywhere.”
