Veteran Ghanaian musician, Tic has made known his intention to sue Nigerian superstar, Wizkid over copyright infringements.
Apparently, Wizkid sampled part of Tic’s ‘Fefe Ne Efe’ hit song in his verse on DJ Tunez’s song titled ‘Gbese’.
Tic in an interview with Andy Dosty on Hitz FM has said without mincing words that he’ll take legal actions against the ‘Joro’ hit singer if he doesn’t do the needful — by compensating him with a handsome amount of money.
‘As a matter of fact, the lawyers are working on it. There has been some discussions. We are on it.’, he revealed.
The ‘Kwani Kwani’ hitmaker also disclosed that Wizkid’s team had proposed a settlement fee but he felt the amount they mentioned was not enough.
‘If they don’t pay of course I will sue them. There has been a lot of discussions going on….some figures mentioned but, there is some things going on’, he added.
Tic released his ‘Fefe Ne Efe’ tune featuring Tony Tetuila in 2004.

In May 2019, DJ Tunez featured Wizkid and Blaqjerzee on his song titled ‘Gbese’.
Wizkid sampled Tic’s ‘Fefe Ne Efe’ song as he delivered the chorus on DJ Tunez’s smash hit tune.

Wizkid once said that he was inspired by Tic while pursuing his music career as a young boy.
It seems Tic will not be lured by this statement as he intends to take legal action against the Afrobeat star.
