Nigerian singer, Abbey Elias, better known as Skiibii Mayana is on the news for the wrong reason. The “Daz How Stars Do”crooner has been called out by a Nigerian man on the social media for alleged copyright infringement.
A man identified as izyungmixx on Instagram took to his page to make a video revealing that Nigerian singer, Skiibii stole his song ‘Daz how star do’ and modified it, making it his own song.
In the video, he said,
“You Skiibii, I dey vex for you o, like for real men, you’re fucking up bro. I did a song for you bro and you can’t even do me a favor by reposting on your story. Just on your story, you can’t do it and you still went ahead and still sing the same thing
“Check my cloud and check the date of when you drop ‘Daz how star do’ it’s not the same. Tell am make he come pay me my money for my song o, I no dey play with Skiibii.”
A social media user who commented on the video on Instablog naija’s page insinuated that the guy was on drugs. The person wrote:
“Codeine x loud isn’t good for you.”
Though the guy didn’t look or sound serious, he could actually have been serious with his accusation against Skiibii and if that is true, then it was totally wrong on Skiibii’s part.
In other news reported by WITHINNIGERIA, Katy Perry Loses $2.78 Million to Gospel Artiste in Copyright Case.
Law court has ordered Katy Perry to pay the sum of $2.78 million in damages to gospel rapper who’s song was ripped.
The money will be paid by Katy Perry, her ‘Dark House’ collaborators and record label bosses, to Marcus Gray and his two co-writers of the 2009 track ‘Joyful Noise’.
The court ruled on Thursday after the Christian musician declared that 45 percent of Katy’s 2013 hit was similar to the tune.
Katy herself will cough out $550,000 to Gray — who performs as “Flame” — after the jury found that a beat used in her 2013 song “Dark Horse” constituted copyright infringement.
Gray’s lawyers had argued for a far higher penalty of around $20 million. “These defendants made millions and millions of dollars from their infringement of the plaintiffs’ song,” attorney Michael Kahn told the court.
