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