Popular Nigerian musician, Wizkid has been dragged to court over alleged copyright infringement.
Singer, Wizkid might be in serious trouble after being sued jointly by Tony Tetuila and Ghanaian musician, Tic Tac, over copyright infringement. The musicians are demanding $82,000 in compensation.
According to the plaintiffs, Wizkid had sampled their song ‘Fefe Ne Efe’ released in 2004 but failed to pay for it. In an interview on Hitz FM’s Daybreak Hitz with Andy Dosty, Tic said Wizkid sampled the chorus of ‘Fefe Ne Efe’ for his verse on DJ Tunez’s song titled ‘Gbese’.
