  A Redeemed Church Pastor, Toyin Ogundipe invited Fuji star, Wasiu Pasuma to perform at their 3 days outdoor crusade titled “Lagos Island Family Areas Forum” between Friday, October 23rd-Sunday 25th,2015 and payment has been done. So now that the program has been canceled, The Fuji star felt there’s need for him to explain incase they intend to ask for the artiste’s fee 

In his words; although, the church’s management paid for the show, it is never done to expect mr to pay back the “artiste fee”, “the fault is not ours, we were ready to perform for them until we learnt of the cancelation of the crusade”.

Pasuma’s picture appeared on the handbill advert and posters alongside gospel singer, Tope Alabi and a former band leader of the late Fela Anikulapo’s Egypt 80 band, Kereke Jike.
The decision to stop the programme was because the church headquarters felt the Pastor had gone too far by inviting a secular artiste such as Pasuma to its church programme.

A source who spoke on condition of anonymity said the organisers did not do a detailed consultation before going ahead with the programme. He also said that it was as a result of it that the programme was cancelled and the Pastor in charge of the church along with the organising committee suspended as they now await further sanction from the provisional headquarters for dragging the name of the church in the mud.
Investigations by City People reveals that The Redeemed Christian Church of God clearly frowns at the use of secular musicians, a development which has been clearly stated in its handbook to Pastors.
*This is rather funny. Even the combination of artistes shows Pasuma wasn’t needed. Shey after Tope Alabi don sing on God, Pasuma will sing on what? This is one chance and do you guys think Pasuma should pay back the artistes fee???

Ed Sheeran, a British megastar, will testify in court to defend himself against claims that he plagiarized Marvin Gaye for his international hit song “Thinking Out Loud.”

Ed Sheeran, a top-charting artist and internationally successful pop star, has been informed by a federal judge that he must go to trial in response to claims that he plagiarized Marvin Gaye’s 1973 smash song “Let’s Get It On” on his 2014 track “Thinking Out Loud.”

In his application to the court, Ed Sheeran argued that the copyright claims should be rejected because they were “baseless” and “far too frequent.”

The plaintiffs claim that Ed Sheeran and his writing partner Amy Wadge copied and exploited, without authorization or credit the Marvin Gaye song, “including but not limited to the melody, rhythms, harmonies, drums, bass line, backing chorus, tempo, syncopation, and looping.” They are seeking $100 million (£90 million) in damages.

A lawsuit was recently filed against Ed Sheeran and his songwriting partners John McDaid and Steven McCutcheon over claims that a chorus from their song “Shape of You” was lifted verbatim from Ross O’Donoghue and Sami Chokri 2015 single “Oh Why.”

The High Court Judge ruled that the imitation was “not purposefully nor unconsciously” made during the trial that took place in March 2022. Ed and his co-defendants were given £900,000 in costs.

Ed wrote on his Instagram page following the court decision that he hoped it would put an end to more unfounded claims. Ed Sheeran is not yet getting his desire, though, as he must deal with another lawsuit.
