It appears the year 2019 is coming to an end for Nigerian singer Wizkid with more drama following claims that have been made by senior colleagues Tony Tetuila and Ghanaian music star Tic Tac.
Just recently, Legit.ng learnt that the individuals have sued the Nigerian superstar over copyright infringement.
According to popular music blog Tooxclusive.com, the plaintiffs in an interview with Hitz FM presenter Andy Dosty disclosed that Wizkid did not give them credit after sampling their song Fefe Ne Efe in a 2019 joint titled Gbese, which he released with DJ Tunez.
They added that Starboy, as he is often called by staunch supporters, did not pay them for sampling verses from the song.
