Zaaki Azzay accuses Sarkodie and Mr. Eazi of copyright infringement

Nigerian Hip Hop artist, Zaaki Azzay has accused Sarkodie and Mr Eazi of copyright infringements.

He stated in a post on Instagram that the two lifted lines from his 1996 song ‘Marry Am’ in the newly released Sarkodie featuring Mr Eazi hit, ‘Do You’.

He wrote :

“Hello @Sarkodie & @MrEazi , this is to let you know that my song “Marry Am” has been lifted in your newly released single “Na You”. I released the monster hit way back in 1996, and i want to believe that you guys should know the consequences of copyright infringements.

This is a massive violation of my musical copyright dues and the illegal exploitation of my intellectual property as i haven’t been contacted for permission/approval for the lyrics of my song to be used.

It’s high time African Artistes wake up to know that copyrights violations/infringements is stealing&theft and hence a big crime.

My next line of actions will be made private for now…. THANK YOU!!!”
