Zaaaki Azzay took to Instagram on Tuesday to call out “Sarkodie & Mr Eazi” and even threatened to sanction them for copyrights infringement.
As at the time of this report, Sarkodie & Mr Eazi are yet to release an official statement.
See what he wrote on via his Instagram Page.
Hello @Sarkodie & @MrEazi , this is to let you know that my song “Marry Am” has been lifted in your newly released single “Na You”.
I released the monster hit way back in 1996, and i want to believe that you guys should know the consequences of copyright infringements.
This is a massive violation of my musical copyright dues and the illegal exploitation of my intellectual property as i haven’t been contacted for permission/approval for the lyrics of my song to be used.
It’s high time African Artistes wake up to know that copyrights violations/infringements is stealing&theft and hence a big crime.
My next next line of actions will be made private for now, Thank you!!!
