Nigerian Musician Tekno in Copyright Mess

Nigerian Musician Tekno in Copyright Mess

Itohan Ferguson

Nigerian singer and producer, Tekno is in the middle of a copyright mess at the moment.

The talented singer and producer who is known for hit songs such as ‘Pana’, ‘Yawa’ and Davido’s massive hit song ‘If’, is clearly a force to be reckoned with in the music industry.

At the moment he is being dragged by the singing duo Danfo Drivers, as it is alleged that he shamelessly incorporated their music, beat and lyrics into his new single ‘Jogodo’, without properly acknowledging them.

The singing duo, expressed their displeasure at what they termed an obvious theft of their intellectual property. They also made it clear that they will not take the matter lying down. This was made known in a recent interview in pidgin English.

If you have heard Tekno’s ‘Jogodo’, you will notice that it sounds eerily similar to Danfo Drivers ‘Kpolongo’.

Tekno is yet to respond to these accusations of theft of intellectual property.
