Producer of Ycee’s "Juice" threatens to sue Tinny Entertainment over non payment of royalties

Adey

Adey - the music producer who produced Ycee's 2017 hit song, "Juice" - has threatened to drag Ycee's record label, Tinny Entertainment to court over non-payment of royalties for the song.

Juice which was among the biggest songs of 2017, is a track on Ycee's "The First Wave" EP, which was released via a partnership between Sony Music and Tinny Entertainment.

When asked whether he had benefited financially from the record, he said "NO". "In terms of benefiting from that song, financially, I would say no."

Adey further explained that although he received a "tiny" first payment from that song, and signed the appropriate paperwork, he hasn't received royalties.

He said;

"I haven't gotten any. I made more money from 'Wavy level' than I have made from 'Juice'. The problem with Nigeria is that if you show your soft side too much, people always take you for a 'dickhead'. That's the truth about it. That's why everyone is so guarded and so angry around here. You make one small step towards trusting someone, and they turn around and dump it on you.
"For me, the type of person I am, I will keep it moving. Regardless of 'Juice' or not, my life will still go on.
"What me I'm personally about is actually doing the right thing. I get upset when people who are close to you take measures to make sure they don't do the right thing."

When asked if he would go to court, Adey said:

"It's happening…they should be aware that it is coming. Both parties believe that they are right, but what is actually right is the black and white on the paper. I don't want to dwell on it too much, but the fact of it is that it is a disservice to me."

He also admitted that he is frustrated to see people confuse Maleek Berry as the producer of the song instead of him.
