Nigerian Disc Jockey, DJ Neptune, has addressed the conflict regarding a music collaboration between himself and singer, Rema.
If you would recall, last week Rema had called out the DJ via his social media account for releasing their collaboration, titled ‘For You’, without his consent.
DJ Neptune however in a lengthy statement revealed that he had indeed gotten permission from the artist’s management before going ahead to release the song on his second studio album, Greatness 2.0.
In a social media post, DJ Neptune shared pictures of chats between himself, and Rema’s manager, Seun Okeke, showing that he was given the green light to publish the song and also make preparations for a music video.
He also shared a letter titled, ‘Re: alleged use of Divine Ikubor a.k.a Rema’s Intellectual Property’, explaining how he followed due process in releasing the said collaboration.
After the notice, DJ Neptune revealed he contacted Rema’s team to explain that the track could not be flagged down as that would amount to the flagging down of the entire album.
The DJ clarified that despite the call out, he was not in any way upset with Rema stating that it is obvious that proper information was not passed across to him through his available channels.
