Audio streaming app, Spotify, has taken down the trending song, Ameno Amapiano Remix (Chill with the big boys), due to copyright and licencing infringement.
The popular jam was done by Nigerian hypeman, Goya Menor, and Ghanaian record producer, Nektunez, who used a track from the classical ‘Ameno’ track owned by Era.
However, the owners of the song were contacted owing to the fact that Menor’s version has lyrics of the original song in it and they have to give consent before the song will be used by the hypeman.
Apparently, the owners of the original version did not give their consent which prompted the streaming app to take down the song.
Amapiano remix received a massive boost owing to viral TikTok challenges and has subsequently turned out to be one of the most played by Nigerians at the moment.
