Busola Oke popularly known as Eleyele, has declared war on secular artiste, Keshinro Ololade, aka Lil Kesh.
This is as a result of copyright infringement on the release of his song, Undertaker. Eleyele argued that notable parts of her 15-year-old eponymous single were used in Lil Kesh’s song which was released on February 29.
She fumed that she would make a scapegoat of Lil Kesh. In her words, She said, “His manager called me and told me they wanted to use my song and I told them I didn’t understand. I told them that they should discuss whatever they wanted with my lawyer. Later, my lawyer told me that they had called him and that he told them not to use the song. A week later, Lil Kesh’s song was released. I think they had already used the song before they called us. We have been trying to reach him since then. My lawyer wrote to them stating that we were ready to go to court, but we couldn’t find his office address; so, we had to post the letter on social media. Maybe he thinks I’m an illiterate that cannot do anything.”
Speaking on the lack of respect artiste have for intellectual property, she said “I feel very bad about it because it is getting too common. I think that’s what is in vogue now. But I’m going to end it. I will use Lil Kesh as a scapegoat; I will accept nothing but justice. He will meet me in court.”
