Carter Efe Young Duu Ownership of Oyinmo’s Viral Song Saga
The music industry is no stranger to drama, and the recent back-and-forth between Carter Efe Young Duu is just another chapter in this long-running narrative.
At the heart of the matter is the ownership of the hit song “Oyinmo,” which has brought both artists into the spotlight.
Young Duu, formerly a member of Portable’s Zeh Nation label, claims that Carter Efe has “collected” his song and is performing it without his consent.
Carter Efe, on the other hand, maintains that he has the rights to the song and that Young Duu is trying to capitalize on its popularity.
This dispute is just the latest in a string of controversies that have plagued the Nigerian music scene in recent years.
In 2020, for example, Berri Tiga accused Carter Efe of reaping him off on their joint collaboration of the hit song “Machala.” And in 2023, Portable accused Kogagidi & Poco Lee of taking advantage of his success.
These allegations highlight the precarious nature of the music industry in Nigeria, where contracts are often unclear and disputes can arise easily.
The lack of transparency and accountability can leave artists feeling vulnerable and exploited, leading to public feuds and legal battles.
In the case of Carter Efe and Young Duu, it is still unclear who owns the rights to “Oyinmo.”
The song’s popularity has undoubtedly benefited both artists, but it has also created a situation where they are both vying for control.
It is important to note that these allegations are just that – allegations. Without concrete evidence, it is impossible to say definitively who is right or wrong.
However, the very fact that these claims have been made speaks to the underlying tensions that exist in the Nigerian music industry.
The music industry is a powerful force, capable of making or breaking careers. But it is also a complex and often unforgiving world, where artists must navigate a web of contracts, relationships, and egos.
The story of Carter Efe and Young Duu is a reminder of the challenges that artists face in this industry, and the importance of transparency, accountability, and fair dealing.
