Paul Play sues Etisalat/Nigerian Idol
According to information, veteran RnB crooner, Paul I.K Dairo may have sued Telecoms Company, Etisalat and Optima Media Group, organisers of the music talent show, Nigerian Idol for the unlicensed usage of his song, Mosorire.
He accused them of reproducing his song on the show and airing it on air as well as their YouTube channel without his permission. According to reports, the organisers of the show ignored Paul Play and his lawyers when they had initially written to them.
This left Paul Play no choice but to drag the organisers to court. Play, according to reports, has sued them for N200m for special and general damages for the flagrant and unlawful exploitation of his copyrighted work.
The case is expected to come up for hearing soon.
