Bukola Elemide, better known as Asa, a sensational Nigerian singer, has served her colleague, Joeboy, with a copyright infringement notice for his recently released song, ‘Contour.’
In a letter addressed to Joeboy through her legal representative, the 40-year-old singer claimed that he used a musical composition she created with producer Tempoe during a recording session in 2020.
She then demanded N300 million for the infringement, as well as a 60% (sixty percent) publishing split on the song.
She also demanded that he remove the song from all music streaming platforms within 24 hours and write her an apology.
In part, the letter says,
“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.”
In response to the notice, Joeboy called Asa’s bluff and dared her to do her worst in an Instagram post shared on his Instastory. People take advantage of him because of his calm demeanor, he says, but he’s not an easy nut to crack.
He also challenged Asa’s legal representative to sue him because the 24-hour notice had expired.
“Cos i dey always do love and light you think sey i be soft meat. You said i have 24 hours, it’s been 48hours, do something,” he wrote.
