The issue of artiste being accused by producers for intellectual theft is becoming alarming by the day, although one can hardly tell if it’s all publicity stunts which some artiste engage in recently.

On the 18th which was singer, Emma Nyra birthday, she released a single from her first EP after breaking away from MMMG, Money vs. Love.

Just days after releasing the song, a producer called OD Beats is now out dragging the songstress for intellectual theft.

At this point you will agree with me, that if it’s not a stunt, then this is really not good for the singers career, just at a peak of making a comeback into the industry.

The producer claims he produced the beat of her first release from her EP, Work hard, but no payment was made from the camp of the singer who later stole the beats from him and gave credit to foreign producer instead.

In his words: “Emma Nyra was in the studio with Samson Ohda aka OD Beats when he creatively produced and composed the reggae/afro pop influenced beat for ‘Work Hard’ off her released Ep. After OD beats had been contracted (Verbally/Text Messages) to produce her EP, shortly after started having difficulty with payment from her camp. Subsequently after trying to make a deposit for OD to send over some tracks, they started making up excuses which lead to her stealing the intellectual property in a sordid attempt to recreate an idea she did not pay for and sell it off as having produced by another Houston based producer (Tag on the track) in a show of spite.

My reason for highlighting and sharing this story is to touch on the manner producers are often taking advantage of when they try to work with an establish artist to a mutual end. I hear these stories countless and it’s devastating to the psyche when someone puts his heart and soul into something and someone else feels entitled enough to steal your efforts with impunity. In an industry that’s already lacking compensatory structure; I can only imagine how producers in Nigeria and other countries are being taken advantage of; which is not to say all artists are that way.”
