Another way is brewing silently in the Music industry!!
Few days ago, Peter Okoye (popularly known as Mr. P) dropped a new single titled “Ebeano (Internationally)” some days ago and Nigerians are already loving and dancing to the sick tune.
Pulling over 80k+ Downloads in just 2 days after it was released, no doubts this is a Jam!
Mr. P has been enjoying all the Accolades his new hit song brings forth until Henry Knights cries out, claiming Mr. P stole his song.
In August 2015, Henry Knight dropped a new single titled “Ebano”. Fast forward to 2018, Mr. P dropped a new single titled “Ebeano”.
Listening to both song, they sounds 98% the same and the only noticeable difference in the Song was the e missing in Henry Knight’s “Ebano” which is available in that of Mr. P’s “Ebeano”.
Henry Knight is not happy about this and below is what he posted on his Instagram page.
Everyday in the NigerianMusic Industry, most of the big artistes who never for once help you even when you reach out to them in growing times, tend to get away with ripping you off and making profit out of your property. Dear Peter okoye @peterpsquare I released a song called Ebano on the 8th of August 2015 with hard earned Money which was produced by TeeMode, You copied the hook of the song without any form of royalty that is required or any form of credit to me.. We have seen other cases, like when Davido credited Teni for "like that" it's clearly true that You rise by lifting others. Henry knight is not all about this drama, I had to do this, because this is not the first time something like this is happening ..
