Mr. Eazi Accuses Bad Bunny Of Unlawful Sample

Nigerian Afrobeats superstar and label boss of Empawa Africa, Mr Eazi, is calling out Puerto Rican rapper and singer for an alleged unlawful sample of a song by one of his artists Joeboy.

On Monday, 6th February 2023, Mr Eazi in a tweet called out Bad Bunny saying:

Yo @sanbenito you need to tell your lawyers to stop messing around and clear that Joeboy rip-off on your album.

Mr. Eazi went ahead to share links to the songs under contention with additional text saying;

“Badbunny @sanbenito in case you are not sure what song I’m talking about… Ain’t no way you produced and sang an Afrobeat record lol”

Bad Bunny who recently brought a slice of his homeland to the 2023 GRAMMYs stage with a pair of tracks from his latest album, ‘Un Verano Sin Ti,’ which made history as the first Spanish-language album nominated for Album Of The Year is yet to respond to the accusation.

In May 2022, Bad Bunny released “Enséñame a Bailar” off his album “Un Verano Sin Ti” whereas Joeboy‘s “Empty My Pocket” was released a year earlier in June.

Mr. Eazi and Bad Bunny first worked in 2019 when the former appeared on the latter and J Balvin’s surprise collaborative mini-album Oasis uniting afrobeats and urbano.
