Rain maker singer, Majek Fashek has accused Nigerian singer, Timi Dakolo, of song theft.
Fashek said that Dakolo had done a remix of his evergreen hit song, ‘Send Down the Rain’ without getting permission from him; DAILY POST reports.
“He broke the rules of copyright. He is a thief because in music business, he must take permission before he works on someone’s song. That is why we have Copyright Society of Nigeria, COSON.
“I did not give anyone the right to do anything with my song. I have a management team I work with headed by Omenka Uzoma. Dakolo never bothered to look for me before stealing my song. He has infringed on the laws of copyright and he is not an original artiste. It is only people like Tuface, Wizkid, Olamide that are original.
“I felt bad when I learnt that he worked on my song without my consent. He did not even give me credit. He is a very bad artiste and he took advantage of the circumstance that I was facing during that time. The song is not a normal song; it is a spiritual hit song.
“Timi Dakolo does not know how I suffered to get that song. I fasted for seven days before I got that song. I partook in three days ‘white’ fasting before the song came to me. Timi Dakolo did not go through that. I did not fight him because I do not have time. Let God judge us,” Fashek added.
