A certain up-coming artiste, Zona Gee, whose real names are Mbamara Arinze has accused popular Nigerian singer Davido of stealing the song,
Assurance, from him after he sent it to him via messaging app, WhatsApp.
In a chat with Sunday Scoop , Zona Gee admitted that he might have been defrauded. This is even as many allege that his claim was a publicity stunt.
Explaining how he allegedly got Davido’s phone number, Arinze said:
“I went for a concert and I saw Davido and some people around him. I knew I couldn’t approach any of them there because of their security men. Later on, I was able to meet one of the guys I saw around Davido, and I asked him for Mayorkun’s phone number.
He said I had to pay for it and I gave him N5,000. When I called the number he gave me, the person who answered the phone identified himself as Mayorkun’s manager. I told him I wanted to speak with Mayorkun and he handed the phone to someone who claimed to be Mayorkun.
Since I didn’t see the person, I cannot verify if it was Mayorkun I spoke with but after speaking with the person for some time, he gave me Davido’s number.
“I knew Davido may not pick my calls; so, I sent him a message on WhatsApp. Some people have been saying that the mail I claimed I was given by Davido was a fake one. However, I was excited because I believed I was talking to Davido and I didn’t bother to make checks.”
