Tic recently in an interview revealed that he wasn’t happy with Wizkid over a copyright infringement. Wizkid sampled the chorus of Tic’s ‘Fefe Ne Efe’ in his verse on DJ Tunez’s song titled ‘Gbese’.
Tic with Andy Dosty on HitzFM said he would take legal action against Wizkid if the singer fails to pay for sampling his song. But it appears that the said legal process started a year back.
Tic and Tony Tetuila are jointly seeking for damages and ask for 35% of revenues accrued from ‘Gbese’. Below is a copy of the writ.
‘As a matter of fact, the lawyers are working on it. There has been some discussions. We are on it.’, he revealed.
The ‘Philomena’ hitmaker also disclosed that Wizkid’s team had proposed a settlement fee but he felt the amount they mentioned was not enough.
‘If they don’t pay of course I will sue them. There has been a lot of discussions going on….some figures mentioned but, there is some things going on’, he added.
Tic released his ‘Fefe Ne Efe’ tune featuring Tony Tetuila in 2004.
