Joeboy, whose birth name is Joseph Akinwale Akinfenwa-Donus, has responded to award-winning singer Asa’s copyright infringement notice.
Joeboy released his single “Contour” in August 2022, which was produced by ace beat maker Tempoe.
Joeboy was served with a copyright infringement notice a few weeks after the song’s release.
According to the notice, “Contour” infringed on the copyright of a musical composition created by Asa during a recording session on September 22, 2020, with Tempoe in attendance.
Joeboy was served with the notice on September 30th, 2022, and was ordered to remove the song from all digital platforms within twenty-four hours, issue a written apology, pay N300 million, and assign Asa a sixty-percent publishing split.
Joeboy refused to comply, and he posted the notice on Instagram, daring Asa to act.
He wrote: “Cos I dey always do love and light you think sey I be soft meat.”
He added: “You said I have 24 hours, it’s been 48hours, do something.”
