It appears the new trend which some upcoming singers have tapped into in the music industry is music theft.
Recently, an up and coming artiste, Wisekid was exposed for replicating Grammy winner, Wizkid’s ”Made in Lagos” album and making N30m monthly under the name Lasgidi Made.
As though others have realised that there is money to be made from copying top musician’s songs and album, another artiste has been exposed for replicating Davido’s album.
Nigerian media personality, Adesope Olajibe raised the alarm regarding another music theft of Davido’s album on music stores.
An anonymous person has done a replica of “A Better time” album on Apple music, but he/she named it A Best Time.
The cover art of the page shows the face of a child while the cover name has Davido’s name spelled as DaVIDO.
Adesope took to his Twitter page to expose the scam and also reached out to the David’s manager, trying to draw his attention to what he saw.
”What’s going on here ? This is crazyyyyyyyyyy. This has to be pulled down immediately cc @davido @AsaAsika @bizzleosikoya,” the media personality captioned his post.
