Singer Lamboginny seems to be very upset with his colleagues five star music and Goge Africa for selling his song on ‘Meje’ Itune without his consent.
According to the singer, he said he is not signed to either Five Star music or Goge Africa and he don’t understand why they will be selling his track.
In a press statement that was released by Lamboginny, he wrote:
“JUST FOUND OUT MY SINGLE MEJE #7 IS SELLING ON ITUNES FOR $1.29 WITHOUT MY KNOWLEDGE BY EITHER GOGE AFRICA, FIVE STAR MUSIC OR BOTH OF THEM. Sometime during the week I was informed that one of my new music material Meje is selling on iTunes but i thought it was just a joke because I just finished signing an international digital distribution deal with “ a Canadian distribution company” for the distribution of my songs, videos and my better part! I mean the video cuts from my humanitarian projects and that wont kick off until mid June but on a second thought I decided to go on iTunes, so I found my song is selling at $1.29 by Goge Africa and Five Star Music without my knowledge. I am not signed under Goge Africa or 5Star Music, so why would they be selling my song? The leading single from my forthcoming album, and a song handpicked to lead my first digital sale online for that matter. We can’t make good money from Alaba Market, we give our songs out to bloggers for free download and iTunes which is our little hope of good record sales and now they are trying to take that away too? NO WAY! I AM GOING TO FIGHT THIS TO THE VERY END. My legal team is coming at you… Why rip me off my intellectual property! Kilode”
