Very sooner than later, a Swedish-based Nigerian Musician, Dr. Alban Nwapa will be haunted by the Inter-Pol for allegedly swindling a young Raggae musician.
Speaking to Nigeria Newspoint weekend, the Orsu-Obodo-born Reggae star who is based in Lagos State, Prophet King Power Skarry Mongo disclosed that Dr. Nwapa who hails from Oguta LGA like him, ran away with his master tape since 1995.
The Raggae musician and activist whose real names are Joseph Iheanacho Adiewere revealed that he stumbled into Dr. Nwapa near a filling station in his Oguta community, where both of them come from in 1995, and he asked him, if he was a musician, because of the way he (Skarry Mongo) was dressed, “I said yes”.
According to him, it was then Dr. Nwapa requested to know if he has an album, he told him of his master tape containing his songs, sub-titled “Crying for freedom”, which he later gave to the Sweden based musician.
The Orsu-Obodo Reggae maestro lamented that since then, close to two decades now, he has not set his eyes on Dr. Nwapa, adding that when he made an attempt to visit his Oguta home; one Christmas, Dr. Nwapa told his security men to stop him and he never got to meet Alban as he was popularly called.
According to him, he had earlier sued Dr. Nwapa for N370m but since the matter is still lingering in court, he intends to review the accruable benefit from proceeds of the master tape to N2billion.
Skarry Mongo averred that he is sure that Alban has made lots of fortunes from his sweat, because he had confessed to have released the song and citizens of Oguta have attested to hearing the music abroad.
The musician who claim to have super-spiritual powers said all he wants is for Dr. Nwapa to settle him, failing which the court matter will catch up with him.
“Alban has made me and my family miserable for over fifteen years, but God only made several attempts on my life, I am living by the grace of Jah-Almighty:, he enthused.
The Reggae star who is also a member of PMAN Imo State chapter has vowed to use every legal means open to himto get at Dr. Alban to pay him all his royalties and benefits.
