JOEBOY TAKES ASA’S 300 MILLION NAIRA COPYRIGHT LAWSUIT FOR JOKES

In a recent discord brewing between Asa and Joeboy, the Fire on the Mountain singer has issued a copyright lawsuit against Joeboy for “Contour.”

Nigerian musician Joeboy uploaded a letter from Asa’s Lawyers that contained claims of a copyright lawsuit relating to the creation of Joeboy’s “Contour” on his Instagram Story.

The composition of the song was developed by Asa at a recording session with Tempoe on September 22, 2020, according to the letter from Asa’s attorneys. It went on to say that their client had denied Joeboy and Tempoe permission to use the composition.

After receiving the letter, Asa’s attorneys ordered that the music be removed from all DSPs within 24 hours. They also ordered that Joeboy and Tempoe apologise to their client for the copyright violation and seize any and all further infractions.

Asa is requesting a settlement of 300,000,000 naira in damages as well as a 60% share of the split sheet as compensation for the harm.
