See why Majek Fashek called Timi Dakolo a thief


Majek Fashek has accused Timi Dakolo doing a remake of his hit song SEND DOWN THE RAIN without permission. He went as far as calling the singer a thief. He stated that in an interview with Punch.


In his own words he said, ‘He broke the rules of copyright. He is a thief because in music business, he must take permission before he works on someone’s song. That is why we have COSON. I did not give anyone the right to do anything with my song.’
Timi Dakolo has reacted to the allegation and from his statement it seems there is a misunderstanding somewhere. The singer shared in and instagram post that he paid Majek’s manager before remaking the song.

‘My people, it saddens me to see such. I always try to do things rightly and lawfully. I paid his manager to remake the song, I got my invoice. I even mentioned to him during our rehearsals at the Headies. So, honestly I don’t understand this write-up. Oga Majek Fashek. I respect and love you. Your voice gives life to lyrics. You are one of the best musicians I know. God bless you.’
Timi released his version of SEND DOWN THE RAIN in 2013.
