Nigerian rapper Eldee has called out his colleague Olu Maintain for performing his hit song ‘Big Boy’ on stage while in New York without due permission.
Reacting to his colleague’s actions, Eldee, who featured Olu Maintain on the song, angrily described him as “shameless” on Instagram, accusing him of attempting to steal the song while it was being prepared for release.
Eldee, whose real name is Lanre Dabiri, said he was forced to release the song prematurely to counter Maintain’s mischievous plans.
“This shameless nigga out on stages performing my songs like he created it. I still remember how he tried to steal the record after I put him on it, forcing me to put it out prematurely,” said Eldee.
Nigga ran off with the unmastered draft and went to print CDs with himself as the lead artist, even his verse was written by me #Appropriation #getyourownshit Lesson to young artist Don’t ever do pity features.”
