Popular Nigerian singer Ayo Balogun, professionally

He, however, revealed that the case has been taken to a Federal High Court for violation of intellectual property rights from the 2004 song Fefe N'efe.
In a recently released song titled Gbese by Wizkid and produced DJ Tunez, Wizkid had used the words 'Fefe N'efe na the beauty of a woman'.

According to court documents released online, Tetuila and Tic are suing Wizkid for N30 million. They are also asking for 35 percent of both the digital sales and royalties received from the song.

According to popular music blog Tooxclusive, the plaintiffs in an interview with Hitz FM presenter Andy Dosty disclosed that Wizkid did not give them credit after sampling their song Fefe Ne Efe in a 2019 joint titled Gbese, which he released with DJ Tunez.
