Wizkid in ‘Gbese’ as Tetuila, Tic Tac approach court over copyright infringement
Demand Over N30 Million And 35 % Of Both Digital Sales And Royalties
Singer and former Remedies member, Anthony Olanrewaju Awotoye better known as Tony Tetuila, and Ghanaian counterpart, Tic Tac have sued Nowo singer, Wizkid over copyright infringement of their 2004 hit song, Fefe N’efe, as his single Gbese has some content from the hit song.
The lawsuit was confirmed in a screenshot of the You Hit My Car fame statement on Twitter, which was published by Instablog 9ja. However, the tweet seems to have been deleted when Tetuila’s twitter page was checked to confirm the statement.
“I just want to clear the air as I am hearing things coming Ghana. Yes, it is true that myself and Tic from Ghana (formerly known as Tic Tac) are both suing Wizkid and DJ Tunez at the Nigerian Federal High Court for violating our intellectual property rights from our song Fefe N’ efe. Our lawyers have advised us not to say more than that. Thank you. Tony Tetuila,” Tweet read
According to a court document dated August 26, 2019, and shared on Instagram by Instablog 9ja, Tetuila and Tac are demanding over N30 million from Wizkid because his single Gbese produced by DJ Tunez, has some content from Tetuila and Tic Tac’s 2004 hit song. The singers are also seeking 35 percent of both digital sales and royalties DJ Tunez and Wizkid received from the song.
