Following the crisis between two recoding companies, Afesco Records and Eleshin Records overÂ Ameerat Ameenat Ajao a.k.a. Obi Rere, the Music Advertisers Association of Nigeria (MAAN),Â has advised its members not to buy the video of the album until the resolution of theÂ crisis.
Speaking through its President, Alhaji Waheed Oyediran a.k.a. Mosebolatan, the associationÂ said that it is not taking sides but there is need to be careful so as not to beÂ embarrassed.
Oyediran saidÂ the case, which was earlier resolved by MAAN, NARI, AGRED and otherÂ stakeholders in the industry, is currently before the Nigerian Ccopyright Commission forÂ final resolution.
Investigations revealed that the crisis started when the singer left Eleshin Records toÂ record the video of the song, Obi Rere, for Afeesco Records. The issue was later reported byÂ the former to stakeholders and when it could not be resolved, the NCC is now looking into it.
