US rapper Wale to record another track with Olamide
Remember when Olamide and US rapper Wale, collaborated on the track “Make us Proud” in support of the super eagles during the world cup?
Well it seems we won’t have to wait for long for another collaboration between the two rappers. It is no news that Wale is a staunch supporter of Olamide’s music, therefore it was not surprising when he made it known on Twitter Thursday, February 12 while responding to a fan’s question directed at Olamide, that he is open to working with Olamide again.
Good news people!

Paul Play drags Etisalat to court for copyright infringement
Veteran singer, Paul Play has filed a lawsuit against telecommunications service provider Etisalat before a Federal High Court in Lagos for alleged copyright infringement.
Paul Play asked the court justice to compel Etisalat to pay him the sum of N200million for using his 2009 hit record “Mosorire” as part of Etisalat sponsored reality show, “Nigerian Idol” for two years without paying him a dime. Joined with Etisalat in the suit marked FHC/CS/581/2014 is one Optima Media Group.
The son of the legendary IK Dairo averred that Etisalat particularly infringed his copyright after they allowed a contestant perform his song on the show without his consent. Paul Play says he is entitled to an annual fee of N100million for the usage of his song in his lawsuit.
The artiste therefore sought a declaration of the court “that the act of adaptation, deployment, public performance and exploitation of his musical work titled “Mosorire” by the defendants without the plaintiff’s prior consent, authorisation or permission constitutes an infringement of the plaintiff’s copyright, as guaranteed by the Copyright Act, Cap C28, Laws of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, 2004 and sections 6 (6) (b) and 44 of the 1999 Constitution.”
