Speaking on Zylofon FM's Showbiz Agenda, the musician disclosed that the company has used his song for so many years but has failed to approach him for the necessary settlement.

“I am going to sue Multimedia for using my song on Adom FM. The song which was released in 1998 by the Shepherds was written by me. And for some time now, I have quietly observed my song being played on the platform as a theme song for their show,” he stated.

To him, he is taking inspiration from Rex Omar, chairperson for GHAMRO, for his threat to sue Zylofon Music's Obibini for copyright infringement.
