Jahbless accussed Timaya of lifting a beat from his song.
Jahbless, a Yoruba rapper, has accused Timaya of copyright infringement. Timaya, the Egberi Papa 1 on Bayelsa, recently dropped his single titled ‘Hallelujah’, which has got over 20,000 views on Youtube.
Jahbless claimed that the beat of Timaya’s new song was lifted from his track ‘Jeje’ featuring Oritsefemi.
Jahbless took to his Instagram page to express his anger and threatened a lawsuit.
Hey bro @timayatimaya who ever produced that your halleluyah jam should be jailed! ..he lifted the instrumental off my album , #iamme album track 2 “jeje ft @oristefemi ..and gave it to you. I want to believe you know nothing about it cos with your years of experience in this game you should know the consequences of copyright infringements. pls avoid such producers in future cos they might tarnish your image. And for you Mr producer, see you in court .
Dem Mama Records, boss of Timaya, is yet to react to this accussation. Some months ago, Enetimi Alfred Odon (born 29 November 1977), better known by his stage name Timaya, was accused of rape by an American singer.
