Veteran Fuji musician, Remi Aluko has accused Damini “Burna Boy” Ogulu and other Afrobeats artistes are “stealing” from the genre.

Speaking in a recent interview with Echo Room, Aluko particularly mentioned Burna Boy whose stage performance he claimed was inspired by fuji.

Nigerian musician, Augustine Ahmedu, also known as Blackface has issued stern warning to the entire music industry to desist or avoid stealing his songs.

Through the years, the former member of Plantashun Boiz has accused different artistes of stealing his songs, the first being his ex-group mate, Tubaba.

In the latest one of such accusations, Blackface claimed Afrobeats sensation, Asake and Wizkid have recreated songs that belong to him.

He said that from now henceforth, he will be taking legal approach to the matter instead of begging people to give him credit for his songs.

Blackface said; “The time I released the songs (that were allegedly stolen) are online. I don’t want to trend; I just want people to stop touching my music without my permission.

I am begging them to stop. I cannot be competing with myself. Many of them plan shows, and they intentionally don’t invite me. They should just give me the credit I deserve.”
