Rema says he wasn’t paid before DJ Neptune released the single ‘For You’ in his latest album.

 

The Mavin Records-signed singer had earlier accused DJ Neptune of copyright infringement. He had said the disc jockey put out their collaborative song on his ‘Greatness 2.0‘ album without his consent.

 

In the heat of the development, Dotun, the radio host and OAP, faulted Rema’s approach to the dispute.

 

“I love Rema a lot. I hosted his first-ever listening. He just needs to find a better approach to things like this,” h said.

 

 “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.”


In his reply, Rema denied insinuations that he was arrogant. He also dismissed the claim that the track was a joint recording between him and DJ Neptune.

 

The singer added that he was not paid, neither did he consent to the release.

 

“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,” Rema wrote in a follow-up tweet.

 

 “I was crossed, I’m not a hothead, I’m just a kid vouching for my Art that’s all, I’m not a disrespectful person.”
