Dapo Oyebanji otherwise known as D’banj is now enmeshed in a controversy over the production royalty and copyright for his hit new song entitled Emergency.
Imo State-based rising producer, P-Loops who produced the new jam has shockingly revealed that he is yet to be paid for production fees for the beat. The aggrieved beat-maker also added that he was not given production credit for the song.
In a chat with PulseNG, P Loops expressed his displeasure with the singer but did not say if he was seeking a legal redress.
“I didn’t record with D’banj, I think Olu sent the beat to him, and he recorded. There was no credit at all, no credit on the promo copy, there was no credit online, no credit whatsoever.
“I did try to talk to them, I talked to Olu Maintain in my office. My trademark was removed. The original beat had my trademark. I talked to them about it, and we were going to have a brief meeting about it, but till now, there has been no credit…It was KC Graphics, his graphic designer who gave me his contact.”
Meanwhile, in a video published by the Net News TV yesterday February 22, D’banj he hardly knows the producer of the song.
“Everywhere I go, people ask me: that song, who produced the song, I never met the guy before, he just sent beat to me. In fact he sent the beat to me through Olu Maintain”, he said in the video clip.
