D’Banj 'Stole' My Beats for Emergency, All I Wanted was for Him to Give Me Credit – P Loops
Budding music producer, P Loops, has told Saturday Beats that contrary to widely held belief, he was only interested in getting due credit for producing D’Banj’s new single, Emergency, and not after financial benefits.
The Koko Master’s latest sound has been enjoying massive airplay and positive reviews since he first performed it during the gala ceremony of the Glo sponsored 2015 African Footballer of the Year Awards held in Abuja two months ago.
“When the song dropped, I didn’t know it was a beat I did and sent to Olu Maintain but I don’t know how it got to D’Banj. It is not as if I was originally contracted to produce the song for him.A lot of those who listened to the song had given credit to D’Banj’s in-house producer – Dee Vee, but the situation left the young P Loop a bit uncomfortable.
“But when I later heard it, I only called out for appropriate credits to be given to me for the song. We met recently and the matter has been resolved. I was paid my due for producing the song and the credit still remains mine,” he said.
P Loops went on to bare his mind on the way producers in the Nigerian music industry are treated. He said instead of celebrating only the artistes who sing the songs, those working tirelessly behind the scene to make such hits must also get their own fair share of the spotlight.
“It can be quite tough getting your voice heard sometimes as a producer of music in Nigeria. Sometimes, it can be frustrating to see the spotlight shining on the artistes alone while producers are being isolated even though they are the ones behind such hits. I think this should change. To encourage them they should be celebrated as well,” he said.
