NIGERIAN ARTISTES AND COPYRIGHTS...

The issue of copyrights is certainly a global issue but i guess its really taken for granted in this part of the world as some artistes lift up lyrics without prior permission but how do we differentiate between an original lyrics and a fake one..The likes of Omawunmi have had issues in the past, now, it is Flavour...Wutah has dragged Nigerian highlife sensation, Flavour Nabania to court over the alleged theft of their intellectual property. According to the Ghanaians, Flavour’s new single Kwarikwa on which he featured Fally Ipupa, was a ‘carbon copy’ of their Kotosa song which they released in 2008.
