Singer Nadia Mukami has threatened to sue Kenyans raising malicious copyright allegations after her song dubbed 'Tesa' featuring Fena Gitu and Khaligraph Jones was removed from Youtube on copyright breach.
In an Instagram post, a disappointed Radio Love singer says she could not comprehend how her song released two years ago has a copyright breach from a song dropped a year ago terming it as malicious.
"A song I released two years ago has a copyright strike from a song released a year ago. Those who sent you please make sure they can fund your lawyer fees! Mark my words. This person will serve as an example to people sending malicious strikes. I hope you have a lawyer," she said adding;
"I am officially going to court. I am ready to spend all the money I have. All the coins I have made to ensure that no person in this Kenyan music industry will ever send a malicious copyright strike again."
In the last couple of months, Kenyan singers have suffered major setbacks from copyright breaches.
Some of the artistes who have been affected include; Krispar of 'Ndove Kuu' and Genge maven Mejja whose songs had been flagged on Youtube and consequently removed.
Krispar's 2021 hit 'Ndovu Kuu' was removed briefly but was later restored however, Mejja'a 'Tabia za Wakenya' still remains unavailable on the world's biggest video platform on copyright allegations.
In October, Nadia and Otile Brown also had a number of their biggest hits missing but according to their management, the songs were unavailable on the streaming platform following a technical hitch from their distributors' end.
It wasn't long until Ngomma VAS restored the unavailable hits including; 'Maombi', 'Wangu', 'Radio Love', and 'Kolo' and Otile's ‘Aiyana’, ‘Such Kinda Love’, ‘Dusuma’, ‘Hi’ and ‘Chaguo la moyo’ which featured songstress Sanaipei Tande.
