Tanzanian singer Juma Jux has been subjected to a major setback after the video to his viral song 'Enjoy' featuring Diamond Platnumz was pulled down from YouTube.
A quick search done by this writer indicates that the song has been removed from the streaming platform following a copyright complaint filed by a Congolese artiste by the name 'Sapologuano Odenumz'.
This video is no longer available due to a copyright claim by 'Sapologuano Odenumz',” read the message from YouTube.
The video was pulled down at a time when it had accumulated over 10 million views since being uploaded on the platform.
This comes weeks after the audio to the same song was all removed from YouTube over copyright claims.
On August 17, the Congolese artiste had promised to ask YouTube to pull down the video if Juma Jux didn’t reach out to him to iron out things.
By the look of things that never happened and that's why the video has been pulled down.
The Enjoy Audio was deleted from YouTube when it had over 10 million views in just weeks.
Speaking to one of the most popular blogs in Tanzania, Odenumz said that it was true that he complained to YouTube because the melodies of his song were found on the Enjoy song.
"Yes, I copyright struck the song because it is the melody of my song I Found Love and it was found on their song Enjoy," he said.
The artist said that he was very shocked after listening to the song Enjoy and decided to write to Jux to inform him but he did not reply.
"I am waiting for them to laugh at me so that we can end it because they have also used their power and accused me. I am in the Congo.
I made a complaint to YouTube about that song a long time ago when the song was released, but yesterday they told me that they succeeded in locking it down.
In the e-mail I saw a message asking me to meet and finish it, all I want is to be paid because it is work we are fighting and we are still young. It's just talk after talking, I can't say how much I want," he said.
Following the latest action from YouTube, Juma Jux has the option of appealing the decision by proofing that he is the rightful owner of the song or reaching out to the Congolese artiste and asking him to withdraw the strike.
