Divine Ikubor aka Rema, a rapper, has accused DJ Neptune of releasing a song they recorded together without permission.
On Friday, the young rapper made the accusation on Twitter.
According to Rema, he pleaded with his management when he was tagged prior to the song’s release, but the song was still released without notifying him.
“With all due respect chief! Dropped my old record without due process?!! I’m not happy at all. @deejayneptune. Don’t violate the codes, can’t drop my song without my notice, can’t even remember the last time we spoke big bro, I pleaded with my manager behind the scenes when y’all tagged me before it dropped, y’all still went ahead! c’mon nau!
“This GAME! Don’t ride on my humility, there are some things I can’t be talked out of and number 1 is my ART, if you’re not ok with it then if it’s war it’s WAR. Don J go vex for me, Baba forgive me but this no join at all,” he wrote.
Rema went on to say that he asked the disc jockey to remove the song and that he kept quiet because he was trying to protect some people’s interests while also feeding his family.
“Lastly, TAKE MY SHIT DOWN! I’m finna make new enemies after this, but God big pass INDUSTRY. This GAME has slapped me too many times on the cheek, I dey quiet because I get people interest to protect and a family to feed. Abeg I sabi mind my business but make nobody vex me o,” he concluded.
Rema, the rapper’s self-titled EP, debuted at the top of Apple Music Nigeria.
