Nigerian artistes notoriously guilty of cheap copy work – It baffles me when very respectable Nigerian artistes who have made a name for themselves resort to cheap copy work to score a hit. Could it be the absence of creativity, poor copyright laws or outright laxity?

Some Nigerian artistes throw out songs which eerily reminds us of a past project which was done by them or someone else. Some could be classified as “Intellectual Property Theft”.
The beats, lyrical structure disappoints as a plagiarism of a foremost hit. It begins to feel like a part 2 of an earlier “gbedu” that we all enjoyed and grooved to. You can hardly sing these songs to the end without confusing the lyrics with another popular song, you must have heard before. The malicious idea here must be that anything served us will be received gladly without complains. In a twist of fate, the artistes get lucky the Nigerian populace rock to it nonetheless; on the flip side it meets outright rejection, criticism and falls flat.
These Nigerian artistes have been very inspiring most of the time, but must be called out for diluting their creativity and taking to heavy acts of copy and paste.
Kcee aka Limpopo master, unfortunately, guilty of making music synonymous to his previous songs. A perfect example is observed in his latest jam “Tinana“. Too many things to say about this one. Lyrical structure and pattern are very identical. Tinana is a chip off the old block Limpopo. Watch the videos for both Tinana and Limpopo you will quite agree with me. Maybe our Limpopo master is undergoing a temporary drought of creative juices. Both songs are produced by famous producer DelB. It looks like he is critically in need a hit and it seems to yield a desired outcome.
Your can tag other songs you undoubtedly know are products of copy work in your comments that are here omitted.
