Highly Spiritual Music signee, Mr. Drew, has stated one of the reasons for being ‘drowned’ in a song theft accusation.

The young Ghanaian artiste has been accused of ‘stealing’ a song titled Love Riddim which belongs to an American / Nigerian artiste called Rotimi.

Following the claims, his management issued a press statement stating that their Label is privy to all the copyrights Infringement Laws and as such, they wouldn’t do such a thing on purpose.

But speaking in an interview with Lerny Lomotey on ‘Lalafio’, the ‘Dwe’ hitmaker says he is not privy to issues surrounding copyright infringement.

“I didn’t know a lot about copyright issues. I didn’t know about it. For me I think, there’s a lot when it comes to copyright and I didn’t know,” he established.

Background

The Highly Spiritual Music label signee has been dragged in the mud for some days now after his song with Stonebwoy, titled “Eat”, was taken down on music streaming stores following a formal copyright complaint by Nigerian-American star Rotimi.

The official music video for the song which garnered over 150k views within the first week of release on YouTube received a copyright strike from Rotimi's record label, Empire.
