Legal Drama

“We Talkin’ Money, You Talkin’ Nonsense”- May D Allegedly Prepares to Battle P-Square in Court

Nothing excites me like legal drama i.e. courtroom battles. Seriously, nothing. Raise your hands if you are an entrepreneur who has ever been subjected to listening to people just go on for days about nothing. They cut into your time and you can’t make sense of what exactly they are saying. Most of it is just boasting about how great their products, services or famous/connected persons they know are. When it comes to delivery, they are no where to be found. If you have ever experienced this, then you know why my favorite line in P-Square’s remixed song ‘Beautiful Oyinye’ featuring Rick Ross is, “We Talkin’ money, you talkin’ nonsense.” *Can I get a “copy that” response from all of my AML entrepreneurs? Oshe!”

Okay, so, it is not only music entrepreneurs or entrepreneurs in general that are about their money and their business. Artists, even emerging artists, have their eyes on the prize. R &B Crooner May D, who was recently ousted from P-Square’s Square Records online, with no formal notice than a press release to the media and public, is allegedly preparing to take the twins to court. He too is pulling the same line I like from P-Square’s song and asking Square records, “I’m sorry what you say? I’m talkin’ money, you talkin’ nonsense.” Okay so he is not saying that literally but will be saying that if they enter a courtroom through his lawyers.

I discussed this case a couple of weeks ago and also discussed possible claims that could ensue including a breach of contract cause of action/claim. At the time, P-Square/IROKO was yet to delete May D’s Youtube page with millions of views. Here we are. The deed is done. What next?

The allegations of May D threatening a lawsuit emerges. Nigerian entertainment industry una too dey threaten way too much for my liking. Get inside the courtroom to enforce your legal rights already. Announce later.  Sheesh.

See the story below from and many other outlets that reported it earlier today.

There goes my keep it very light music week. *Sighs. Grabs a fresh apple from the AML fruit basket. Bites into it. Hmmm . . crunchy!*
