A fairly popular gospel act, Busola Oke whose stage name is Eleyele, has lashed out at Lil Kesh, threatening to make him a scapegoat to other hip hop artists who illegally use other musicians’ songs.

Busola stated that the former YBNL artist wrongly used lines from her 15-year-old song in his most recent single, Undertaker.

While having a discussion with Sunday Scoop, the musician insisted on making Lil Kesh face charges on copyright infringement, adding that he was aware of the consequences before going ahead to release the song.

She said, “His manager called me and told me they wanted to use my song and I told them I didn’t understand. I told them that they should discuss whatever they wanted with my lawyer. Later, my lawyer told me that they had called him and that he told them not to use the song. A week later, Lil Kesh’s song was released. I think they had already used the song before they called us. We have been trying to reach him since then. My lawyer wrote to them stating that we were ready to go to court, but we couldn’t find his office address; so, we had to post the letter on social media. Maybe he thinks I’m an illiterate that cannot do anything.”

On the incessant illegal use of intellectual properties, Busola further stated, “I feel very bad about it because it is getting too common. I think that’s what is in vogue now. But I’m going to end it. I will use Lil Kesh as a scapegoat; I will accept nothing but justice. He will meet me in court.”

Meanwhile, neither Lil Kesh nor his management team has responded to the allegations.
