Mr. Drew ft Stonebwoy music video deleted by YouTube over copyright infringements
Mr Drew, a Ghanaian singer has suffered the brunt of YouTube as he has had his music video that featured Stonebwoy deleted after it supposedly breached Youtube’s copyright laws.
The Highly Spiritual Music signee recently took to social media to celebrate the said song he titled “EAT” after it gained over 100,000 views that were achieved without any malfeasance.
The song which has gained over 150,000 views has been brought down by YouTube, the largest video streaming platform, simply because Mr Drew did not seek the appropriate permission from the owner.
This means that Mr Drew will be unable to monetize the video and it will surely be a blow in his face and a dent of his music career.
According to reports, the ‘EAT’ song was a sample from Rotimi’s ‘Love Riddim’, one of the great songs from his ‘Walk With Me’ album which was released in July 2019.
On the back of that Rotimi’s record label, EMPIRE filed a copyright claim against Mr Drew which has resulted in his music video been deleted by Youtube.
