Mayinja faces Shs375m lawsuit over Museveni song

Mayinja meets President Museveni at Kusasira’s concert last year

Ronald Mayinja’s song titled ‘Akalulu Kako Muzeeyi’ is barely two weeks on the airwaves but it has managed to get him the attention he perhaps last received when he released songs like ‘Tulikubunkenke’ and ‘Africa’ among others.

The circumstances under which the song came about are what has made it popular and but the artist is in trouble over it.

Leave the Bebe Cool trouble of blaming NRM for fronting Mayinja over him but the former Eagles production is facing legal issues because of this song.

According to Walusimbi & CO Advocates, Mayinja is facing charges of infringing on their client’s copyright.

They believe that Mayinja used Kitooro market in the video of the song. “You infringed on our client’s copyright on 30th October 2020 or thereabouts when you used our client’s images, footage, and other artistic work depicting the recently commissioned Kitooro market at Entebbe in the trending video of your campaign song titled “Mzee” without our client’s consent,” reads part of the notice of intentions to sue.

Therefore they are demanding that the artiste ceases and desists from further copyright infringement by immediately pulling down the video containing the infringements complained of.

Besides this, they also demand an apology and compensation of shs375, 000,000 with one week from the date of receipt of the letter.
