Veteran musician, Majek Fashek, has entered into a new scandal this time involving soulful singer Timi Dakolo.
Majek Fashek has accused Timi of stealing his song.
In an interview with The Punch, Fashek says Timi Dakolo stole his popular song ‘Send Down The Rain’, also accusing Dakolo of capitalising on his ill health to do this.
Fashek 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.”
Timi Dakolo wasted no time in responding to this allegation, taking to his Instagram page to say that while he did a remix of the song he did so with the permission of Fashek’s manager and that he was also in possession of the invoice that he received from Fashek’s manager.
“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 don’t 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..” he posted.
