Bukola Elemide who is popularly known as Asa, has slammed a copyright infringement notice on the Afropop sensation, Joseph Akinwale Akinfenwa, aka Joeboy.
In the recent saga, the European-based singer claimed that Joeboy recently released song, Contour was lifted from her musical composition which she recorded on September 22nd, 2020.
Reacting to this, she demanded the sum of N300 million and a 60% (sixty percent) publishing split on the song.
This was also directed to Joeboy’s team from Asa’s in a composed letter which attracted Nigerians to the saga.
The letter states;
”It has been brought to our attention that your newly released song, Contour (the “Song”), infringes on the copyright of our Client, as recorded/captured in a musical composition (the “Composition”) which she created in a recording session, which took place on 22 September 2020, with the producer of the Song, Alageu Michael Chidozie (p.k.a Tempoe) in attendance”
“We hereby demand that you immediately remove the Song from all DSPs and any other platforms within twenty-four (24) hours of your receipt of this letter, with a written apology issued to our Client as well as halt any additional infringements of our Composition, including any other infringements.”
‘We also demand that the sum of N300,000,000 (Three Hundred Million Naira) as well as a 60% (sixty percent) publishing split on the Song be assigned to our Client.”
Reacting to this, Joeboy quickly took to his Instagram story and detailed that his admired attitude doesn’t mean there is room for humiliation from anybody in his life.
Adding to his response, he dared Asa to follow any legal right and punish him with the claim that she awaits her. He shared the saga and captioned it with the word, ‘Lol’.
