Singer Fik Fameica real name Shafi Walukagga is being dragged to court for stealing a song. Tanzanian rapper Chin Bees accuses the Ugandan hotshot of plagiarizing his hit single Pepeta. Fameica was served with a Cease and Desist Cum Intention to Sue letter by lawyers representing Chid Bees alias Mussa Ramadhani who is popular for his hit song ‘Pepeta’.
According to the letter dated November 23 and issued by KTA Advocates, it has come to their notice that Fik Fameica released a songtitled ‘Mafia’ in 2018 that bears the same musical composition and arrangement as their client’s ‘Pepeta”.
The letter is addressed to the rapper and his manager Karma Ivan. The letter adds that the two songs ‘Mafia’ and ‘Pepeta’ are entirely alike phonetically and their client takes issue with Fameica’s unlawful copying and unauthorized use of the song.
Consequently, Fik Fameica has been ordered to cease and desist from further promotion and performance of the song with immediate effect. Additionally, he has to take down all publications of the song from his social media and online platforms plus submit an inventory of all the proceeds he has so far accumulated from the song.
