Majek Fashek Set To Sue Timi Dakolo For N100m Over 'Copyright Infringement'
Speaking with Vanguard on the phone, the tough-talking manager said they would be suing Timi Dakolo for using Majek’s all time hit, ‘Send down the rain’ without authorization.
He said before the end of March after their return from a trip to the United Kingdom, 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.”
When Majek himself was asked about the issue he playfully referred us to his manager with a shrug, “Well, I don’t want to talk about young artistes, he is a kid. Let my manager speak on that.”
