It’s never too late to undertake and recoup your royalties, is it? Apparently not if you’re songwriter Reagan Sarkozy popularly referred to as Mwana wa Nzambe who yesterday came out and revealed that he wrote and arranged gospel singer Daddy Owen’s Wewe Ni Mungu and Okokroko songs but was neither accorded any rights nor paid his services.
In documents seen on net, the Congolese songwriter is now suing Daddy Owen for Ksh 2 million in damages for unpaid royalties and honoring their agreements.
Reagan Sarkozy also claims that Daddy Owen engaged his RB band to play for him at Koroga Festival in 2014/2015 but never saw a dime.
The writer also claims to possess written Owen’s Vanity song which the singer gave gospel star Pitson credit for.
A source on the brink of Daddy Owen says, “Unfortunately this is often a groundless lawsuit by someone Daddy Owen had helped get off the streets, lent a hand to, and now thinks he’s a simple target to mark trying to find money.”
It seems that the Mbona hitmaker could also be learning a harsh lesson in what it means once you don’t pay your employees.
