TheCable Lifestyle had earlier reported how an up-and-coming artiste named Wisekid was alleged to have made about N30 million monthly from cloning Wizkid’s 4th studio album.

Wisekid, whose stage name is an imitation of Wizkid’s, released an album with the title ‘Lasgidi Made’, a localised alteration of the ‘Ojuelegba’ crooner’s album title. He then went ahead to dub the names of Wizkid’s tracks.

In the wake of the heated criticism that trailed Wisekid, Pollock took to her Twitter handle on Wednesday to point out that calls to address the issue have not gone unnoticed.

Pollock, who doubles as the mother of the singer’s third son, said her team has been working to take down all imitations of Wizkid’s works.

“RCA have been actively working on taking down the illegal uploads across all digital platforms from yesterday morning,” she wrote.

“Relating to the fraudulent “Wisekid” account. Thank you Wizkid FC for your dedication and patience. It does not go unnoticed.”

Wisekid had denied the claims of copyright infringement against him, noting that Freeme Digital, a distribution company, handles the distribution of his songs.

In response, the music firm stated that ‘Lasgidi Made’ was not distributed on its platform. The distributor also vowed to remove the rest of Wisekid’s content on its platform.
