Music stakeholders led by Alhaji Waheed Olumo of Olumo Records, Alhaji Mo-Saheed of MoSaheed Records, Fuji Musicians Association of Nigeria (FUMAN), Islamic Musicians Association Of Nigeria,(ISMAN), Musical Instrument Rentals Association and others have appealed to the President of Music Advertisers Association Of Nigeria, MAAN, Alhaji Waheed Oyediran and Fuji Musician Saheed Osupa to sheathe their swords and embrace peace.
This appeal was made recently during a stakeholders meeting held at the Abalti Barracks in Lagos.
During the meeting which was convened by the Music Label Owners Association of Nigeria, MULOAN, Alhaji Olumo and Mo-Saheed urged the Alhaji Waheed Oyediran a.k.a. Mosebolatan-led MAAN to lift the ban on the Fuji musician, Saheed Osupa and that both parties should embrace peace.
MULOAN executive council led by its president, Elder Joel Ajayi, supported by the Public Relations Officer, Tunde Oselu of Thunderbolt Visions and the Assistant Secretary, Rotimi Babatunde, reiterated the association’s position on the issuance of logo.
Ajayi said the suspension has nothing to do with the feud between MAAN and Saheed but it became necessary to check its abuse and to pave way for a more effective and transparent process of issuing the logo, adding that logo is not a condition for replicating companies to produce their jobs.
“We also enjoin all artistes, promoters, marketers, distributors and retailers to release and sell their musical CDs, without logo until further notice,” he said.
