An upcoming Nigerian singer, Keanzo Abami has taken to social media to call out popular artiste, Zlatan Ibile for stealing his intellectual property without permission.
In a post shared on his Twitter page, Abami lamented that he’s a single father trying to earn a living from music, but Zlatan recreated a song he made in 2019 without reaching out to him.
He wrote: “I am a single father trying to erk a living from music, but @zlatan_ibile has decided to take my content without my permission. I sang “My Life” in 2019 and in January 2021, Zlatan is using my intellectual property without reaching out to me. #ZlatanCheatsKeanzo.”
“Can you help me beg Zlatan Ibile not to do this? This industry really has a long way to go with the way IPs are being used without consent. This is really unfair. #ZlatanCheatsKeanzo.”
