Timi Dakolo is set to be dragged to court by Nigerian music legend, Majek Fashek, for using Majek’s all time hit, ‘Send down the rain’ without authorization.
His manager, Uzoma Day Omenka, said before the end of March, they would file the suit unless Dakolo can provide proof of authorization by any representative of Majek. “We are not taking this case lightly. We are just awaiting the arrival of our solicitors from the U.S., and the UK then we will hit the courts.
For crying out loud, this guy is making money from itunes and he did what he did because he thinks in Nigeria, anything goes. If he can prove, as he claimed, that he paid for the use of the song and he can show concrete proof of it, then he will go free, but if not, we will definitely meet in court,” Omenka said
The manager expressed his anger with Timi Dakolo’s lack of respect toward the veteran musician, saying, “Timi remixed the song without the knowledge of Majek Fashek.”
