Word getting out to NET reveals that Nigerian Singer, Henry Knight is embittered about his song ‘Ebeano’ which has been reported to be copied and remade by Peter Okoye, one of the the Psqaure brothers.

Worse still is that both songs have the same title and Mr P’s new single a complete rip-off of Henry Knight’s Ebeano.

In an Instagram Post Henry Knight wrote ‘Everyday in the Nigerian Music industry, most of the big artistes who never for once help you even when you reach out to them in growing times tend to get away with ripping you off and making profit out of your property.

‘Dear Peter Okoye, I released a song called Ebano on the 8th of august 2015 with my hard earned money, you copied the hook of the song without any form of royalty that is required or any form of credit to me’.

NET reached out to Henry Knight’s manager, Shola Ijanusi who revealed that his team has been trying to reach out to Mr P through text messages and direct messages but got no response. If we do not receive any response by the end of this week, we will have no choice but to take the matter to court.

Mr P is yet to respond to messages sent to him as at the time of this report.

Everyday in the NigerianMusic Industry, most of the big artistes who never for once help you even when you reach out to them in growing times, tend to get away with ripping you off and making profit out of your property. Dear Peter okoye @peterpsquare I released a song called Ebano on the 8th of August 2015 with hard earned Money which was produced by TeeMode, You copied the hook of the song without any form of royalty that is required or any form of credit to me.. We have seen other cases, like when Davido credited Teni for “like that” it’s clearly true that You rise by lifting others. Henry knight is not all about this drama, I had to do this, because this is not the first time something like this is happening ..
