Nigerian Singer, Timi Dakolo has been accused by fellow Nigerian reggae singer-songwriter and guitarist, Majek Fashek of stealing his hit song Send down the Rain.
The song send down the rain was a hit back in the 90’s from the Album Spirit of Love. In 2013, Timi Dakolo released his version of the hit song.
In an Interview which he granted to Punch Newspaper, Majek Fashek accused Timi of doing a remake of his hit song ‘Send Down The Rain’ without due permission.
‘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,’ Fashek had said.
‘That is why we have COSON. I did not give anyone the right to do anything with my song.’
However, Dakolo has denied making use of Majek’s original version without going through proper channels.
Here is what he had to say on his Instagram Page:
