P Square in Theft Scandal!!!

I don't know if this comes as a surprise considering that Psquare is synonymous with plagiarizing international acts.But, at present,they are being accused of stealing a materials from one of the tracks of Nollywood actress, Steph-Nora Okereke's yet to be released debut album(does she even sing?) Hope she learnt a thing or two about music from her counterparts Genevieve, Shan George and Omotola.


She claims that months ago, she gave one of her tracks"Jeje"to Jude Okoye, the elder brother/producer/director/manager(these Igbo boys sef) of P square.This according to her, was for him to give his professional opinion on the song.Apparently, the only professional opinion he could give was by including it in the "Invasion Album".Below is an except from an interview she granted in this regard.



“I sent the song over to Jude via email and he listened to it. The next day I called him for his opinion and he said exactly these words ‘Stephnora the song is good but don’t release it like that because it doesn’t meet the standard of the Nigerian market’. I asked him what should be done and he suggested that I return to the studios and brush it up.
As a brother and colleague, I took his advice and went back to the studio with my producer, Jiff. I also consulted with my manager, and we agreed to improve on the work ahead of the album launch, which I planned for this December. I finally completed the song in May/ June. But to my consternation, two weeks ago my personal assistant called my attention to P Square’s new album, which included a track entitled Jeje.
“What they did was to remix the chorus of my version to a danceable track. That was not all; they also gave their version the same title, Jeje and featured Waje.”



She has vowed to take the matter to court.

Hey Steph either way, we now know you sing.Maybe the theft is worth it any way.There is no publicity like bad publicity.
