According to THE NET, Char|€X Novia also released a statement saying Timi Dakolo did not break any laws. ‘Well yeah, I brought a statement on this last year which absolves Timi of any wrong doing and we still stand by that statement.
‘Majek in the presence three or four witnesses gave us permission to negotiate that deal on his behalf. Timi Dakolo actually went through all the processes required to clear the song.
‘I don’t know what Majek’s new management is trying to achieve with these things,‘ he said.
The legal representative of Majek Fashek had earlier threatened to slam Timi Dakolo with a massive law suit in the region of N100 million if he fails to tender concrete documents of a legal agreement to use the hit song.
