Joeboy reacts to singer Asa’s N300m copyright infringement notice

Oct 4, 2022

Joeboy, whose birth name is Joseph Akinwale Akinfenwa-Donus, has reacted to the copyright infringement notice that was sent to him by award-winning singer Asa.


In August 2022, Joeboy released his single titled “Contour,” which was produced by ace beat maker Tempoe.


A few weeks after the release of the song, Joeboy was served a copyright infringement notice.


According to the notice, “Contour” infringed on the copyright of a musical composition which was created by Asa in a recording session which took place on September 22, 2020, with Tempoe in attendance at that said session.


The notice, which was served on September 30th, 2022, demanded that Joeboy removes the song from all digital platforms within twenty-four hours, issue a written apology, pay N300 million, and assign Asa a sixty-percent publishing split.


Joeboy refused to comply and he took to  Instagram to share the notice while daring Asa to act.
