Sefa, a Ghanaian musician and D’Black’s Black Avenue Muzik (BAM) record label signee has apologized for copyright infringement following the release of her Shuga song.

Sefa reportedly said that she didn’t seek permission nor authorization from the owner of Daddy Lumba’s ‘Aben Wo Ha’ before using the song as part of Magyi.

Sefa reportedly said that “we sampled the song and we didn’t do anything which is wrong on our part and we are very very sorry. But I think the fact that people are saying that is not creative is a bit misunderstanding. Now people in my decade don’t know these songs and so going back and merging it with what is happening now if that is not creative then I don’t know what it is”.

Sefe reportedly said that a good way to promote the songs of music legends is to incorporate old songs into new songs.

Sefa argued that incorporating old songs would help keep alive the song forever and this act is not consciously done but prevail in creativity.

Sefa is currently promoting her music ‘Magyi’ which features Ghanaian rapper, Medikal.
