‘You Are A Thief’ – Majek Fashek Slams Timi Dakolo



 











Veteran reggae Nigerian artiste, Majek Fashek (Majekodunmi Fasheke) has slammed R&B singer, Timi Dakolo, alleging that Dakolo “stole” his evergreen hit song, Send Down the Rain.


Fashek made this claim in a chat with Saturday Beats recently stating that Timi, in 2013, had done a remix of the song but never took permission from him (Fashek) before doing the song.
Dakolo never bothered to look for me before stealing my song. He has infringed on the laws of copyright and he is not an original artiste. It is only people like Tuface, Wizkid, Olamide that are original.


He said, “He broke the rules of copyright. He is a thief because in music business, he must take permission before he works on someone’s song. That is why we have COSON.



“I did not give anyone the right to do anything with my song. I have a management team I work with headed by Omenka Uzom
Timi Dakolo responded to the allegations on his Instagram page, saying he rightfully paid Majek’s manager for the rights to remake the song, and he even has the receipts to prove it.
MY PEOPLE IT TRULY SADDENS ME TO SEE SUCH… I ALWAYS TRY TO DO THINGS RIGHTLY AND LAWFULLY… I PAID HIS MANAGER TO REMAKE THE SONG,I GOT MY INVOICE…I EVEN MENTIONED TO HIM DURING OUR REHEARSALS AT THE HEADIES.. SO HONESTLY I DONT UNDERSTAND THIS WRITE UP… OGA MAJEK FASHEK..I RESPECT AND LOVE YOU…YOUR VOICE GIVES LIFE TO LYRICS… YOU ARE ONE OF THE BEST MUSICIANS I KNOW..GOD BLESS YOU..
