Charly Boy has threatened to sue Premier Records for copyright infringement.

Charles Emeka Oputa, also known as Charly Boy, a famous Nigerian singer and activist, has vowed to sue his old record company, Premier Records Limited, over an alleged violation of contract inked in 1988.

Charly Boy alleged the record label broke the terms of their agreement inked 35 years ago in a letter submitted by his lawyer, Rockson Igelige, dated June 19, 2023.

According to the letter, the singer signed “artists recording contracts” with the corporation in 1988, 1990, and most recently, all of which have now expired.

He claimed that even though the contracts had expired, Premier Records was still infringing on his copyrights to his musical creations.

“On our client’s instructions, we demand that your company hand over our client’s master tapes, artworks, promo collateral for the music and other relevant and confidential information with your company within 30 days of the date of this letter.

“We also demand your company’s payment of our client’s outstanding royalties.

“We have our client’s instructions to formally inform your company to stop further breach of our client’s copyrights to the musical works under the musical albums and single(s) produced during the aforesaid expired contract period.

“This is as a result of the fact that the condition precedent as well as the consideration for the contracts were not met and furnished.

“This serves as a legal notice that further breach after the receipt of this letter will attract legal action”, the statement reads.

As of the time of posting this article, Premier Records had not responded to the claim.
