Nigerian singer-songwriter, music executive and top man of EmPawa Africa, Mr Eazi, took to his LinkedIn and twitter account to call out Puerto Rican superstar, Bad Bunny, for a copyright infringement on one of the songs of Nigerian artist, Joeboy. EmPawa is home to a lot of amazing talents in Africa including Joeboy; hence, Mr Eazi’s grouse.
“Yo @sanbenito you need to tell your lawyers to stop messing around and clear that Joeboy rip-off on your album,” Mr Eazi tweeted.
According to Mr. Eazi, Bad Bunny recorded a Joeboy song, “Empty My Pockets”, without following the legal clearance process with the label and the artist.
In addition, Mr Eazi attached a YouTube link to the song in question in another tweet to further validate his claim. In the post on his LinkedIn page, Mr. Eazi complained about the disregard from Bad Bunny and his label over their failure to clear the song. He further complained that he found their actions to be disrespectful and condescending.
Bad Bunny is yet to respond to Mr Eazi allegations.
