Singer Brymo, also known as Ọlawale Ọlọfọrọ, has accused Grammy-winning artist Burna Boy of appropriating his intellectual property. Brymo alleges that Burna Boy’s songs ‘City Boys’ and ‘I Told Them’ have sampled the title track from his forthcoming album, ‘Macabre.’ He contends that what Burna Boy did amounts to a “crime” and should result in a prison sentence.

Brymo expressed his concerns on his Instagram account, stating, “By the end of this year, you will all remember that ‘Macabre’ was not released to the public, and as discreet as it gets, ‘City Boy’ and ‘I Told You’ were given to Burna Boy.”

He goes on to say, “The use of one of the track titles I mentioned above is there to indicate that the latter, along with his album title, is derived from the hook I sing on my album’s title track ‘Macabre.’ Burna is truly something else, and that’s a crime. An actual crime… punishable by imprisonment. And if you folks decide to bring back legendary artists to complain about stolen songs… you will regret this to many degrees… Aren’t you paying attention?”

Don Jazzy explained that paying attention to critics serves as a distraction.

“Worrying about what people think during both your grinding phase and your successful phase is a distraction.”

According to him, these power plants make substantial contributions to Nigeria’s electricity supply.

In discussing his family’s business ventures and personal investments, Davido mentioned his brief foray into cryptocurrency due to its popularity in Nigeria. He also highlighted his family’s involvement in the energy sector, emphasizing their ownership of four lucrative power plants that distribute electricity across a considerable portion of Nigeria.

Additionally, Davido disclosed plans to venture into the restaurant business with his wife, who has a passion for culinary arts. However, he reiterated that his primary focus remains on his music career.

While Davido’s family boasts wealth and investments in the energy sector, some observers may dispute his claim that their power plants supply the majority of Nigeria’s energy needs. The Nigerian government owns most of the significant thermal and hydropower plants in the country.
