Song Theft: Singer Henry Knight Calls Out Peter Okoye Over ‘Ebeano’ Song

Yet another Nigerian singer has been accused of ripping off the works of struggling artists, this time it is former P-Square star, Peter Okoye, who now goes by the stage name ‘Mr P’.

The father of two was put on the blast by upcoming artist Henry Knight who accused him of stealing the line and hook of his 2015 song for his Ebeano song.

“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,” wrote Knight on his Instagram, adding, “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.”

He continued, “We have seen other cases, like when Davido credited Teni for “like that” it’s clearly true that You rise by lifting others.”

While Tekno has resolved the issue with the veterans, Peter Okoye seemingly mocked Henry Knight by posting a video of himself bumping to the controversial song.
