times at shows,where I performed my songs in her presence and the only thing she
told me was that she loves my style of song but she never told me that she was planning to lift some lines from
my song titled “Do Something” until in February this year when the label owner
that released my album called me to ask why I allowed Omawunmi to lift some
lines from my song without permission or credit to me and I was surprised.
Even till last week I have been trying to call her but she refused to
pick my calls.
