Naiboi Responds to allegations he failed to pay Producer iLogos
Singer Michael Kennedy Claver popularly known as Naiboi has responded to allegations made by producer iLogos claiming that he failed to pay for 10 songs.
Through his lawyer, David Katee has refuted the allegations and has asked Ilogos to withdraw the defamatory statement.
In a demand letter, Naiboi has given Ilogos 48 hours to unconditionally withdraw all strikes against his YouTube channel and issue an apology for the same.
“We have hereby been instructed by our client to demand the following from you; that you cease and desist from making any defamatory statements against him on any platform; That you furnish him with all his content in your possession with immediate effect,” reads part of the letter.
In the same demand letter dated April 6, 2020, Naiboi has also called out the producer claiming that he withheld some of the works they did with Naiboi.
According to Naiboi, iLogos claimed to have lost some of the songs he produced for him in 2017, only to resurface less than three weeks ago.
“In 2017, you produced a sound recording for him in which he authored and recorded a chorus for the same but this also you claimed was lost with the rest but it resurfaced last week when a song was released by another artist. It is from the foregoing that our client states that you lied about losing his songs and you went ahead and sold the same recording and the chorus to another artist by the name Arrow Bwoy knowing very well that it belonged to our client. Arrow Bowy went ahead and did the verses and released the song which premiered last week containing the same sound recording and chorus but going by the name Toto,” the letter states.
In an earlier post, iLogos claimed that Naiboi failed to pay him for the songs he produced.
“Hey, this’s Ilogos music. So this is a very sad story. There’s this artist called Naiboi. I produced for him more than 10 songs but as I was expecting payments, this dude seemed to have no intention of paying and some of the tracks have been released. When I started pushing for my rights of payments the guy never picked my calls or respond to any of my texts. I didn’t want to pick a fight and so I decided to sell the unreleased tracks, one of them was Toto whom the new client was ArrowBwoy and he paid cash for the project,” read the post.
Ilogos also pointed fingers at Naiboi for pulling down singer Arrow Bwoy’s song from Youtube over copyright.
“So this Toto track had a written chorus already on that matter I’m the author of the prehook and hook. Suddenly, this Naiboi guy started to claim the rights of the song, the track he couldn’t pay for,” he said.
