Jaywon And Simi Remixed My Hit Song "Joromi" Without My Consent – Sir Victor Uwaifo Speaks

Highly respected Nigerian music composer, Sir Victor Uwaifo in an exclusive interview with Vanguard, revealed that new skool singers; Jaywon and Simi remixed his hit song "Joromi", without his consent. According to him, he will not sue them for copyright.

"They didn't contact me before doing a remix of Joromi but I'm like a father to them so I can't begin to drag them to court, so let them make a living out of it, but at the same time it's piracy. I've heard it too many times on different occasions. It shows the quality of the music that has come a long way. As far as I'm concerned, I've lived five lives (from one generation to the other), so if they want to appreciate and still appreciate me, it shows the quality of the music. It's one thing to be an artiste and it's another thing to stay on the scene for a long time; so I will not discourage artistes trying to remix or do another rendition of Joromi, but rather encourage them to give credit to the composer if they do".
