Oxlade and Melvitto had a Twitter feud over alleged copyright infringement


Melvitto is a Nigerian multi-talented artist in the United Kingdom, recently engaged in a public spat with Afrobeats sensation Oxlade over releasing a new tune. Melvitto has released a new EP named ‘Overdose,’ which includes the single ‘Folasade,’ which features Oxlade. The song’s appearance on the CD has sparked debate because it appears Oxlade and his crew did not vet the tune.

In response to a Twitter user who asked if Oxlade had cleared the music, Melvin admitted that it was inserted without his knowledge or approval. Melvin explained that he chose revenge for his decision to make another video for ‘Wait For You without his permission. Following some back and forth between the two artists, Melvitto said he ordered his label to remove the song, resulting in the EP’s removal from Spotify.


Melvitto indicated that he plans to re-release the EP on Spotify after eliminating ‘Folasade,’ the subject of the copyright infringement accusation. Oxlade Responds: In a related development, Oxlade has stated that he would not be tricked by Melvitto as long as he lives. As long as I breathe, your dad will not reap me again,” he said, indicating that the situation was far from over.
