Singer did not get permission for sampling our record, says Danfo Drivers

Tekno has been accused by Danfo Drivers for not receiving permission for remaking the hit single, 'Kpolongo'.

One of the highlights of the recently held Headies 2018, was the resurgence of Danfo Drivers on the big stage as they evoked nostalgic feelings performing their hit tune, Kpolongo.

The group have now called out Tekno for using their song without permission.

Tekno, who is presently getting rave reviews and topping charts following the release of his single, Jogodo, is presently concluding the video for the song.

The song is a remake of the classic tune, Kpolongo bearing direct resemblance not just in melody but in lyrics and the group are unhappy with this.

Tekno is yet to react to Mad Melon and Mountain Black's accusation.

Update: Tekno has responded to the issue which has been gathering momentum online. The star singer posted a photo of him with Mad Melon and Mountain Black on his Instagram on Thursday, May 10, 2018.

Tekno captioned the photo with "love" accompanied by three love emojis. Maybe, there is now an agreement in the works between Tekno and Danfo Drvers.
