Timi Dakolo rain compliments on Majek Fashek in response to his ‘song stealing accusation
Following the song theft allegation made by reggae singer, Majek Fashek, Timi Dakolo, has come out to deny that he stole the singer’s ‘Send down the Rain’ hit.
Dakolo made a post on his Instagram on Saturday, July 2, 2016, where he refuted claims that he remixed the singer’s hit song without his permission.
According to the R&B singer, he paid Fashek’s manager an undisclosed amount in a bid to do his own version of ‘Send down the Rain’.
Reacting to the accusation, he said, “My people, it saddens me to see such. I always try to do things rightly and lawfully,” Dakolo, who is also a judge on The Voice Nigeria, said in an Instagram post.”
“I paid his manager to remake the song, I got my invoice, I even mentioned to him during our rehearsals at the Headies. So, honestly I don’t understand this write-up.”
“Oga Majek Fashek. I respect and love you. Your voice gives life to lyrics. You are one of the best musicians I know. God bless you.”
