Sir Victor Uwaifo accuses Jaywon and Simi of copyright theft

Veteran Nigerian singer, Prof. Victor Uwaifo, has accused music stars, and Simi  of remixing his hit song ‘Joromi’ without obtaining permission from him.

According to the singer who was one-time Edo State Commissioner for Arts and Culture, he won’t be suing but encouraged new generation singers to give credit for their work.

Here’s what he said in his exclusive chat with Vanguard Showtime;

“They didn’t contact me before doing a remix of Joromi; but I’m like a father to them so I can’t begin to drag them to court, so let them make a living out of it, but at the same time it’s piracy.

I’ve heard it too many times on different occasions; it shows the quality of the music that has come a long way. As far as I’m concerned I’ve lived five lives (from one generation to the other), so if they want to appreciate and still appreciate me, it shows the quality of the music. .

It’s one thing to be an artiste and it’s another thing to stay on the scene for a long time; so I will not discourage artistes trying to remix or do another rendition of Joromi, but rather encourage them to give credit to the composer if they do”.
