The 1st runner-up of the maiden edition of TV3 music reality show Mentor, Andy Odarky, has disclosed that Kojo Nkansah popularly as Lilwin is not the rightful owner to their new joint titled ‘Ayeyi’.
Speaking to Sammy Flex on Zylofon FM’s Showbiz Agenda, Andy revealed that the ‘Ayeyi’ tune was composed by him but due to some promised deals from Lilwin, he decided to collaborate with the boss of Weezy Empire on the song.
He also revealed that the Kumawood actor is not gifted enough to pen-down songs on his own, hence stating that his well-known songs were written by people.
However, explaining what stirred the issue up, stated; ‘’ Kojo Nkansah is claiming ownership by naming the song and making me the featured artist which is not true. We were supposed to sign a contract last year. It was Boss Nation now Weezy Empire but it was Boss nation that said they were going to sign me on their record label. So they wanted Kojo Nkansah and me to have something on our own so they can use it for song of the signing. Kojo Nkansah can’t write a song. All the songs he brought out was written by people. So I was told to record a song for him so when he gets back from his Europe tour, I can tell him his part. So I wrote the song it was a bit difficult because his timing was bad. “
Andy prior to the conversation Zionfelix.net monitored had released a press statement which cautioned Lilwin to either make their deal official thus signing him on his record label as he promised, or face court actions for stealing his songs and claiming ownership.
“Our attention has been drawn to our music Ayeyi which is in circulation by Kojo Nkansah, Lilwin, and CEO of Weezy Empire. The CEO of Fire House Andy Odarky is cautioning Kojo Nkansah team to stop promoting and claiming ownership of the song written and owned by Andy Odarky of TV3 Mentor Fame with immediate effect or face lawsuit” the statement zionfelix.net sighted read.
Andy who felt cheated poured out his heart to Sammy Flex concerning the press statement he released on 14th August 2018 and said that Lilwin never on any occasion gave him notice on the release of the song, although he wrote the song. The musician divulged during the chat on the entertainment morning show that he only saw the audio and video of the song online without any prior notice from Lilwin and his boys.
