Eleyele Crooner, Busola Oke popularly known as Eleyele has accused Keshinro Ololade popularly known as Lil Kesh for her copyright infringement with the release of the song the Artiste titled, Undertaker.
Busola Oke stated that elements of her 15-year-old eponymous single were used in Lil Kesh’s song which was released on February 29. In a chat with Sunday Scoop , Eleyele fumed that she would teach Lil Kesh a bad lesson he would never forget.
“His manager called me and told me they wanted to use my song and I told them I didn’t understand.
I told them that they should discuss whatever they wanted with my lawyer. But Later, my lawyer told me that they had called him and he had told them not to use any part or content of the song.
A week later, Lil Kesh’s song was released. I think they had already used some of the song content before they reached us.
We have been trying to reach him since then. My lawyer wrote to them stating that we were ready to go to court, but we couldn’t find his office address; so, we had to post the letter on social media. Maybe he thinks I’m an illiterate that cannot do anything.”
Stating further and describing how her intellectual property was stolen by Lil Kesh, without her consent, She said:
“I feel very bad about it because it is getting too rampant in Nigeria and Africa at large. I think that is what is in vogue now. But i promise I’m going to put an end to it.
I will use Lil Kesh as a Scapegoat; i will take legal action on the case and i will make sure he learns lesson, so that next time, whenever he wants to make use of someone intellectual property, he will follow normal protocol and never underrate the copyright owner.”
“He will meet me in court, and I will accept nothing but justice.” She said.
Meanwhile, all calls and Messages put through to the Shoki crooner, Lil Kesh and his management were not answered neither replied as at the time of filing this report.
