P-Square Accused Of Song Theft

Popular Nollywood actress Steph-Nora Okere recently accused the super successful hip-hop duo P-square of stealing  materials from Jeje, one of the tracks in her yet-to-be released debut album. In P-square’s latest album titled “The Invasion”, one of the tracks had the song “jeje” which Nora says is her song. P-square featured RnB/Soul crooner, Waje in that song.

The story is that Steph-Nora Okere supposedly sent the song to Jude Okoye (P-square’s elder brother) in order to sample his highly esteemed opinion and was very upset when she found out that “her” song had been included in P-square’s latest album.

“What they did was to remix the chorus of my version to a danceable track. That was not all; they also gave their version the same title, Jeje and featured Waje.”

She explains further: “I sent the song over to Jude via email and he listened to it. The next day I called him for his opinion and he said exactly these words ‘Stephnora the song is good but don’t release it like that because it doesn’t meet the standard of the Nigerian market’. I asked him what should be done and he suggested that I return to the studios and brush it up.

“As a brother and colleague, I took his advice and went back to the studio with my producer, Jiff. I also consulted with my manager, and we agreed to improve on the work ahead of the album launch, which I planned for this December. I finally completed the song in May/ June. But to my consternation, two weeks ago my personal assistant called my attention to P Square’s new album, which included a track entitled Jeje.”

Ope Banwo in his reaction disclosed that he intended to file a copyright infringement lawsuit against P Square next week if they do not respond to their demand letter. “This kind of thing should not be tolerated. P Square is a big group that should not take advantage of up and coming artistes and their friends. Stephnora trusted them and they stabbed her in the back,” he added.

Jude Okoye has however totally denied the allegation (whether tampering or stealing) and says Steph-Nora is trying to attract more attention to her acting career and that she should go to the court to seek redress if feels the song was stolen from her.

  • Wow! Musicians have been noted 4 this every now and then. The PSquare are not the first to be accused on this nefarious activities. Probably, they met their match this time around. Anyway, the Nigerian copyrights commission are not helping the matters in our industry. Therefore, I encourage Steph to seek court redress. Even though, the truth might not be found in our polluted court.
