The good Lawd blessed them with the same melodies.
Last summer, Queen Naija was accused of stealing some of John P. Kee's musical property. Her track, "Karma," appeared to hold a likeness to the pastor's song called "Life & Favor." Although the singer had responded to these allegations back in July, affirming that she had come up with "Karma" on her own, Kee is still gunning for justice for what he deems to be copyright infringement.
The issue was back on Naija's radar this week. She took to Twitter to air out her frustrations: "why is this man tryna sue me for something I didn’t do.. lol ? He need to gone somewhere & preach the word of God."
The award-winning gospel star had previously expressed that he bears no ill will towards Queen personally.
“…never would I try to shame a young artist! But be advised I’m not just an old Gospel artist! I’m a business man,” he reportedly stated.“I’ve been a publisher for over 35 years. This is bigger than her. Staff, producers, management, agents, etc. should have handled this properly out the gate!”
This came in response to Queen Naija's original objection, which stated, " That Gospel song was nowhere in my mind. Y'all act like people can't think of the same melodies, and trust me. That melody ain't nothing crazy. People will take anything and run with it."
