Nigerian veteran singers Danfo Drivers, have debunked rumour of collecting money from MMMG act, Tekno, who they accused of intellectual theft in a past interview.
Danfo drivers who were pictured with Tekno few days after they accused him of remaking their song ‘Kponlogo’ without seeking permission, said they forgave him for the act after he paid them a visit in Abuja and might even be doing a remix for his new single ‘jogodo’.
According to duo who noted they wouldn’t have called out the MMMG act if he had nice to them, they agreed earlier that they would see at the Eko Hotel in Lagos after the Headies Award but he refused to pick their calls.
Speaking with Goldmyne TV, Mountain Black said;
“We didn’t collect any money from Tekno; you can ask him. The deed has been done; we cannot reverse it any longer. He planned to release the video of the song last week. He asked if he could go ahead and we gave him our permission. But I told him we could do a remix later.
“Why would you release a job without telling the owner of the song? When he called that he wanted to see us, I told him we were busy but we should meet at the Headies and he said it was okay. We were invited for the Headies at the Eko Hotel and he lives very close. On that day, we called him and he was not picking up. That was why I granted an interview where I said we were looking for Tekno.
“Last week Wednesday, he called that he was coming to see us in Abuja. So, he came down to Abuja and apologised for what he did. I told him we were not interested in his money but we wanted him to work together with us as a team.”
