Nigerian pop star, Rema on Friday accused DJ Neptune of releasing his vocals on his new album without his consent.
“Don’t violate the codes, can’t drop my song without my notice. Can’t even remember the last time we spoke big bro. I pleaded with my manager when y’all tagged me before it dropped, y’all still went ahead c’mon nau”
DJ Neptune released his eargerly anticipated sophomore album titled, ‘Greatness 2.0’ in the early hours of Friday.
Since its release, fans, friends and colleagues have welcomed the star-studded studio work with excitement. Rema, however, seems not to be feeling any of this.
He took to his social media page to express his displeasure at the release of a track on DJ Neptune’s new album which features him.
According to Rema, the track titled, ‘For You’ was released without his permission. He disclosed that he had asked his manager to address the situation with DJ Neptune prior to the release of the song. Rema requested that the song never be released. But, that request obviously didn’t yield any result.
