Nigerian artiste, Divine Ikubor, professionally known as Rema, has revealed he was not paid for the collaboration he had with disk jockey, DJ Neptune, which was released on Friday.
The Mavin Records-signed singer had earlier accused DJ Neptune of copyright infringement. He had said the disc jockey put out their collaborative song on his ‘Greatness 2.0‘ album without his consent.
In the long thread of tweets, Rema threatened ‘war’, while insisting that the song be taken down.
Reacting to the issue, Do2dtun, radio host and OAP advised that Rema find a better approach to addressing conflict with his colleagues in the music industry.
“I love Rema a lot. I hosted his first-ever listening. He just needs to find a better approach to things like this. You all recorded this together, we were not there.
“He also needs to address things with his representatives. Trust me, this won’t be more than a mere miscommunication,” he tweeted.
In his reply, Rema denied insinuations that he was arrogant. He also dismissed the claim that the track was a joint recording between him and DJ Neptune.
The singer added that he was not paid, neither did he consent to the release.
“OG we didn’t record it together, neither was I paid, neither did I sign any document, neither did the producer ask for my consent before releasing my stems. I was crossed, I’m not a hot head, I’m just a kid vouching for my Art that’s all, I’m not a disrespectful person” Rema wrote in a follow-up tweet —REMA (@heisrema)
