“Na Song I Sing, I No Kill Person” – Obidiz Breaks Silence Over Mercy Chinwo’s ₦2 Billion Lawsuit



Singer, Obidiz risks losing his first hit song over lyrics comparing Mercy Chinwo to Cardi B

Obi Lawson, popularly known by his stage name Obidiz, a Nigerian Afrobeats musician, has responded to gospel singer Mercy Chinwo’s accusation and N2 billion lawsuit for using her name without her consent.

Mercy Chinwo sued Obidiz for N2 billion in damages after he made a reference to her in one of his songs.

In the lawsuit, filed on March 23 and delivered to him by Chinwo’s legal representatives, Obidiz was accused of using Chinwo’s name and image in a derogatory manner.

Furthermore, Obidiz was warned not to use Chinwo’s name or image in any future promotional materials, including music.

Consequently, he was required to remove all images, promotional materials, and music that featured Mercy Chinwo’s name and likeness from all streaming platforms. If he failed to comply with the demands, he would be taken to court and made to pay a fine of N2 billion.

Initially, Obidiz refuted the claim that he referenced the gospel singer in the song, as was expressed in his first statement to the media. He took to Twitter to defend himself and stated that the song titled “Mercy Chinwo” was about a lady he met, and he did not intend any harm by mentioning her.
