Singer denies stealing Majek Fashek’s song

Majek Fashek had earlier accused the R&B singer of remixing his 'Send down the Rain' song without his permission, a report which the latter denied, claiming that he paid his (Fashek) manager to work on the song.

 

Dakolo made a post on his Instagram on Saturday, July 2, 2016, where he refuted claims that he remixed the singer’s hit song without his permission.

According to the R&B singer, he paid Fashek’s manager an undisclosed amount in a bid to do his own version of ‘Send down the Rain’.

Reacting to the accusation, he said, “My people, it saddens me to see such. I always try to do things rightly and lawfully,” Dakolo, who is also a judge on The Voice Nigeria, said in an Instagram post.”

“I paid his manager to remake the song, I got my invoice, I even mentioned to him during our rehearsals at the Headies. So, honestly I don’t understand this write-up.”

“Oga Majek Fashek. I respect and love you. Your voice gives life to lyrics. You are one of the best musicians I know. God bless you.”

Majek Fashek had earlier mentioned in an interview with Punch’s Saturday Beats that Dakolo broke copyright law by remixing his song without his permission.

He called the R&B singer a thief, who had no respect for professionalism.
