With developing instances of intellectual theft in the music business, a Nigerian artist, Henry Knight, has charged Peter Okoye (Mr P) of lifting content from his tune without legitimate credit.
Henry Knight on Wednesday shared his grievances on his Instagram page, blaming enormous artistes for not helping the development procedure of forthcoming artistes.
Going with his protracted subtitle, Henry Knight played the two melodies one next to the other to uncover Mr P’s charged endeavor at replicating his snare (ensemble).
Henry Knight further hailed another singer, Davido, for giving proper credit to Teni for a track titled “Like That.”
“It’s clearly true that you rise by lifting others,” he said.
Henry Knight released “Ebano” in August 2015 while Mr P, a defunct member of the duo group, P Square, released his version “Ebeano (International).”
Mr P is yet to react to the allegations.
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 ..
