Music Producer Napji calls out Davido over alleged unpaid royalties


April 24, 2024

Napji, who produced three tracks, including the huge hit song “FEM,” off Davido’s third album “A Better Time,” is complaining about unpaid publishing and royalties.

The hitmaker Davido has come under fire for outstanding debts from the producer of his hit song “FEM.”

In a post on his X (formerly Twitter) account on April 22, 2024, Napji states that he was paid 500,000 Naira each for producing ‘FEM’, ‘Jowo’, and ‘Sunlight’ off Davido’s 2020 album ‘A Better Time’.

Napji who was credited as a producer on all three songs shared that he was yet to get his royalties and publishing while promising to share more information as he seeks to collect his royalties and publishing.

“I am Napji, producer behind Fem, Jowo and sunlight on @davido album (A better time).Which was released 13th November 2020. I was paid an advance of 500 thousand naira for each of the songs. I will be releasing more information as I seek to collect my royalties & publishing,” the tweet reads.

Davido has reacted to Napji’s claim of the unpaid royalties owed to him. The Grammy-nominated superstar replied to Napji’s post on X with “Ur Papa”.

Although Napji’s claim is unclear based on Davido’s tweet, it is anticipated that additional information will become apparent when Napji releases the material he had promised to in order to pursue publication and royalty claims.
