Simi, Jaywon Remixed ‘Joromi’ Without Permission – Sir Victor Uwaifo

Posted by Oluwatobi Ibironke on November 11, 2017 in HOT!!, News · 6 Comments

Sir Victor Uwaifo,  singer of the 60’s hit song, ‘Joromi’ has come out to say that Simi and Jaywon failed to request for his permission before making the different remixes of his song.

In an exclusive chat with Vanguard NG, the one-time Edo State Commissioner for Arts and Culture, revealed that Jaywon and Simi did not obtain copyright permission from him before recording a remix of his hit song, ‘Joromi’.

“They didn’t contact me before doing a remix of Joromi; but I’m like a father to them so I can’t begin to drag them to court, so let them make a living out of it, but at the same time it’s piracy.

I’ve heard it too many times on different occasions; it shows the quality of the music that has come a long way. As far as I’m concerned I’ve lived five lives (from one generation to the other), so if they want to appreciate and still appreciate me, it shows the quality of the music. .

It’s one thing to be an artiste and it’s another thing to stay on the scene for a long time; so I will not discourage artistes trying to remix or do another rendition of Joromi, but rather encourage them to give credit to the composer if they do”, he said.

  2. Too much wisdom on this man. Its easy to differentiate the educated ones from the just there.

  3. No sir. Simi’s Joromi is not a remix of your song. The fact that both songs bear the same title does not make it a remix.

    • Stanley do u no wat is copyright?! 50cent named his movie things Fall apart den realized dia is a book wt dt title, do u no how much he offered to pay the author even dou d story r completely different?! Simi cud ve used a diff name but insisted on joromi dt makes it copyright. But d old man says No issue!!
