His hit song, Great Nation, was played at a point during the presidential primaries of the ruling party on Tuesday.
A Nigerian human rights’ activist, Segun Awosanya had first reacted by tagging the singer in a tweet that read: “My brother @timidakolo I hope them don pay us for this song wey them dey play for APC convention so? 🤔 #GreatNation 🇳🇬.”
Responding, Timi wrote: “Why use an artist song without their permission in a rally or campaign? The things people get away with in this country called Nigeria. Actually this is the second time.”
