Nigerian music star, Bukola Elemide, popularly known as Asa, has slammed a copyright infringement notice on Afropop singer, Joseph Akinwale Akinfenwa, aka Joeboy. She claimed that his recently released song, Contour was lifted from her musical composition which she recorded on September 22nd, 2020. Asa, in a letter she wrote to Joeboy through her management, demanded the sum of N300 million and a 60% (sixty percent) publishing split on the song.
The ‘Bibanke’ crooner asked him to immediately remove the song from all DSPs and any other platforms within twenty-four (24) hours. She also requested a written apology.

The letter read in part; ”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. It added; ”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.”

Is the song published already? Do you want him to take it down or you want a share with your music going down daily and, how did he get your song if you have not published it?
