You must have heard the advert by Liquid telecom which uses the phrase “kilikiti ama deals yaiponena”. Which references Nez Long’s hit song “Keka“. Well, it turns out Liquid telecom has not paid its dues to the artist whose work they have sampled.
However, Nez Long came across an advert by the company using the term which references his hit song.
“Nez Long is claiming for general damages for copyright infringement. And for damages for fraudulent misrepresentation. Furthermore, he is seeking an order that the defendant renders an account of profits made from copyright infringement.” Watchdog stated.
Nez Long has not spoken publicly about this.
