I No Wan Fight – Zaaki Azzay revisits copyright case

Zaaki Azzay, the ace singer, has revisited the copyright infringement claims levied against Mr Eazi, his younger colleague.

In 2019, the singer accused Mr Eazi of “lifting” ‘Marry Am’, his 1996 single, for the production of ‘Do You’,  the emPawa Africa head honcho’s collaborative single with Sarkodie, the Ghanaian rapper.

“This is a massive violation of my musical copyright dues and the illegal exploitation of my intellectual property as I haven’t been contacted for permission/approval for the lyrics of my song to be used,” Azzay said in 2019.

“It’s high time African artistes wake up to know that copyright violations/infringements are stealing and theft and hence a big crime.”

Mr Eazi had also admitted to lifting part of Azzay’s song but added that the issue “would be resolved quickly”.

But in a recent interview, Azzay said Mr Eazi has been “running away from me” and also stopped “picking my phone calls”.

He wondered why Mr Eazi would be accusingBad Bunny, the Puerto Rican rapper, of copyright infringement when he has refused to resolve his issues with him.

“He took my song ‘Na Me Go Marry’ without permission or acknowledgment, without doing the needful,” he said.

“He called me on the phone, he begged and said he would do the needful. Up till today, Mr Eazy has been running. You can be suing someone and be running.

“He is not picking calls. His lines are no longer going through. Would you do the needful or should I sue you too? I no wan fight.”
