Peter Okoye aka Mr P of the defunct music duo, Psquare, has been accused by a fellow singer Henry Knight of sampling his song without permission.
Taking to Instagram, Henry Knight posted the song as well as Mr P’s version and wondered why he was never given any credit. He said an acknowledgement from Mr P would have gone a long way in helping an artiste like himself.

”Everyday in the NigerianMusic Industry, most of the big artistes who never for once help you even when you reach out to them in growing times, tend to get away with ripping you off and making profit out of your property. Dear Peter okoye @peterpsquare I released a song called Ebano on the 8th of August 2015 with hard earned Money which was produced by TeeMode, You copied the hook of the song without any form of royalty that is required or any form of credit to me.. We have seen other cases, like when Davido credited Teni for “like that” it’s clearly true that You rise by lifting others.
Henry knight is not all about this drama, I had to do this, because this is not the first time something like this is happening.”
