November 26, (THEWILL) – Nigerian artiste, Divine Ikubor, better known as Rema, has stated that he was not paid for the collaboration he had with disk jockey, DJ Neptune, which was released on Friday.
THEWILL had earlier reported that the singer called out DJ Neptune on his Twitter page, for releasing the collaboration without his permission.
The song, titled For You, was the fourth track on the DJ’s second studio album, ‘Greatness 2.0’ released in the early hours of Friday.
In the Twitter thread, Rema threatened ‘war’, while insisting that the song be taken down.
Reacting to the issue, popular OAP, Do2dtun advised Rema find a better approach to speak on the conflict with his colleagues in the music industry.
“I love Rema a lot. I hosted his first-ever listening. He just needs to find a better approach to things like this. You all recorded this together, we were not there.
“He also needs to address things with his representatives. Trust me, this won’t be more than a mere miscommunication,” he tweeted.
Replying, Rema explained that he was blindsided in the whole process of releasing the song as he neither received payment nor gave his endorsement for the song’s release.
“OG we didn’t record it together, neither was I paid, neither did I sign any document, neither did the producer ask for my consent before releasing my stems.
“I was crossed, I’m not a hot head, I’m just a kid vouching for my art that’s all. I’m not a disrespectful person,” he replied.
