Singer Ciara took to her instgaram to share clips from her new song ‘Freak me’ which features Nigerian artist,Tekno – who also produced yesterday and some of Tiwa Savage fans noticed it was from her single ‘before nko’ ft D’prince. In an interview with TheNet.ng,Tiwa’s management discussed their disappointnment with the MMMG signed artist ‘We were surprised that they went that route. They didn’t even just sample some strings, the beat and lyrics of the hook are basically the same. Tiwa is extremely upset because it seems like a rip off of her sweat.’
‘They didn’t ask or inform us before the song was made. As a matter of fact, we reached out to them when we heard the song but they didn’t do us the courtesy of even responding. This is not how to do things. Tekno himself is not sharing links to the song as much as his boss Ubi is. This is wrong‘, our well-placed source said.
He added too that ‘It may not have been in Ciara’s place to know that the song belonged to someone else but the onus was on Tekno as the featured act and producer (who we believe gave the song to her anyway) to inform her.’
Though credit were given to Tiwa and D’prince ,they don’t see it as permission.Hmm,To be honest i didn’t know such song ‘before nko’ exist But thanks to Ciara now, the song is back to life. Watch the video below;
So what do y’all think? Should Tiwa take a chill pill? – you know it’s funny how Nigerian artist remake songs of US singers (A LOT!) and no one attacks them for that ;Rihanna’s Umbrella,50 cent in da club, Jay Z’s story of OJ Simpson,and recently ,This is Nigeria from Childish Gambino This is America. Like Seriously Tiwa? Anywho,Ciara is a great dancer….
