This is an issue only in Nigeria. MOST of the world hit songs were not written by the artistes who sang them.

In the western world, songwriters always get a percentage of the music sold and also if the song is remade by another artist. I'm sure it's not the same here in Nigeria. Some don't even acknowledge the true writers of their song talkless of paying them.

Sia wrote Diamonds for Rihanna, pretty hurts for Beyonce, even Titanium with David Guetta and many others. Nigerian Singers should hire writers since they can't write. I'm happy Davido is doing it. There are professional songwriters all over the World.

It just shows that our music industry in Nigeria is still in its building stage, song writers are the back bone of musicians, but some Nigerian artists prefer to steal your song rather thn buying it.
