Yoko B Claim 2Baba Stole the Song “Amaka” From Him
Rising Festac based upcoming singer, Analike Okezie aka Yoko B accused popular R&B star, 2face Idibia of song theft and insisted the track “Amaka” is his.
2Face had released a pop tune titled, “Amaka”, on June 26, which features DMW’s Peruzzi, and like 2Face, Yoko B’s version is also about how an “Amaka” broke his heart.
Though Yoko B said his version was released in March, but both songs do not bear any similarities save for the title and theme.
A visibly distraught Yoko B who spoke on the chat, said, “They can’t do such thing to us and expect us to be calm about, we paid money for the production of the said song Amaka. We are still saving up for the video and we have already been negotiating with music video director, Avalon Okpe.
“I released my song five months ago and I have been unable to raise funds to shoot the video. The new song, Amaka, by 2baba featuring Peruzzi is my concept. Richie, who also produced the chorus of the song, produced the song.”
Speaking about the origin of the alleged song theft, he said, “Shortly after producing my song, Larry Gaga employed Richie and he left Festac Town for Lekki where he worked with 2baba. My songs were still on his computer at that point. I was shocked when I discovered that they had ‘stolen’ the title, concept and message of my song”.
