Just three days after Timaya dropped the video of his latest single, Hallelujah, Yoruba rapper, Jahbless, has alleged claims that the beat of the song was lifted from his track ‘Jeje’ featuring Oritsefemi.
Jahbless took to Instagram on Sunday to call out the producer of Hallelujah and even threatened to take the matter to court.
He posted a snapshot of the video captioning:
“Hey bro @timayatimaya who ever produced that your halleluyah jam should be jailed! ..he lifted the instrumental off my album , #iamme album track 2 “jeje ft @oristefemi ..and gave it to you. I want to believe you know nothing about it cos with your years of experience in this game you should know the consequences of copyright infringements. pls avoid such producers in future cos they might tarnish your image. And for you Mr producer, see you in court “.
Jahbless released his album I Am Me, which included ‘Jeje‘ (produced by Krizbeat) on May 29, 2015 while Timaya’s ‘Hallelujah’, produced by Jez Blenda, was released on August 15, 2015.
As at the time of compiling this report, the Dem Mama records boss Timaya is yet to comment on the issue.
