Disbanded hiplife duo, Wutah may be suing Nigerian singer, Flavour N’abania for intellectual property theft. Reports say that the management of the group is not pleased with the striking resemblance of Flavour’s ‘Kwarikwa’ song with Wutah’s award winning ‘Kotosa’.
Flavour has been accused of ‘stealing’ the chorus, rhythm, rhyme and the opening saxophone beat used in ‘Kotosa’ with total disregard for Wutah’s right as legitimate owners of the song. Kotosa, produced by Appietus was released in 2008 before Wutah split in 2010. Flavour released ‘Kwarikwa’ in 2011.
Wutah Kobby told myjoyonline.com that they were consulting their legal advisers and will pursue Flavour in the right way. This will not be the first time the Nigerian artiste is being accused of stealing the intellectual property of a Ghanaian musician. It was reported that his hit song Ashawo which gained massive recognition across Africa and Ghana, was culled from an old Ghanaian hi-life song.
