No matter how incoherent some people may feel veteran artiste, Majek Fashek is, nobody could take away his sound state of mind and the bitterness he felt when he claimed in a chat with Saturday Beatsrecently how Timi Dakolo, the R&B singer, “stole” his evergreen hit song, Send Down the Rain.
Timi, in 2013, had done a remix of the song but Fashek said Timi never took permission from him before doing the song.
In an exclusive chat with Satuday Beats, the reggae singer said Timi Dakolo capitalised on his state of health and remade his song without taking permission from him.
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 Uzoma. 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.
