Ghanaian music producer, Jeff Tennyson Quaye (Jay Q) has accused a Nigerian artiste and producer, Udoka Okun (Selebobo) of using his work without his permission.
Jeff Tennyson alleges that Selebobo used the horn melodies he played in VIP’s ‘Ahomka Wom’ for his recent song: ‘Take’ without permission or authorization.
Jeff Tennyson reportedly said that his publishers in South Africa, Sheer Publishing has been contacted and discussions are ongoing with Selebobo over the alleged infringement.
“People sent the song to me and when I checked, Selebobo had used the trombone melodies that I played in there. And so, I contacted my publishers in South Africa and they are in talks,” Jay Q reportedly said.
Jeff Tennyson reportedly said that his team would pursue the case in court.
Jeff seeks withdrawal of the song or shares profits from it 50-50 with him.
According to Vanguard News, Jeff Tennyson has begun litigation processes after Selebobo allegedly failed to take any action over the matter.
Apart from VIP, Jay Q has also worked with great Ghanaian musicians Castro, Mzbel, Obrafour, and Daddy Lumba. Other are Nana Acheampong, Ofori Amponsah, Akosua Agyapong, Obuoba J. A. Adofo, Wulomei, among others.
The case is ongoing.
