Cardi B faces $50 million copyright infringement lawsuit

Popular American rapper Cardi B is currently facing legal action for suspected copyright infringement.

The lawsuit against Cardi B was filed by two singers from Texas and Oklahoma over allegations that she used their song in her track “Enough (Miami)” without seeking proper authorization.

It is worth noting that “Enough (Miami)” by Cardi B was met with commercial success, charting within the top 10 upon its release in March.

According to sources, Miguel Aguilar, also known as Kemika 1956, and Joshua Fraustro, or Sten Joddi, have pointed out that Cardi B and her production team incorporated elements from their 2021 song “Greasy Frybread” into her track.

The plaintiffs have emphasized that their song was even featured as a promotional asset for the FX series “Reservation Dogs.”

Not only Cardi B, but Atlantic Records, Warner Music Group, and producers OG Parker and DJ SwanQo have also been listed as co-defendants in this lawsuit.

Interestingly, “Greasy Frybread” by the plaintiffs had been released approximately three years prior to Cardi B dropping “Enough (Miami)” on March 15, 2024.

The Jagun Jagun producer made this known in a statement on Tuesday, May 7, in which he highlighted the negative effects of piracy.

Recall that in 2021, Femi Adebayo dragged the online TV to court to a Federal High Court in Ibadan over the copyright of his movies.

The petitioner, through his counsel, Mr Y.B. Adebowale, had alleged that Aforefo TV specialised in defrauding members of the public by using the title of newly-released movies to advertise old ones.

The actor further said that Murfy Ben International Limited used Survival of Jelili, the title of the film he produced in 2019, to promote Kodi Ologbon-Aye which he released in 2015.

However, in his statement in Tuesday, Femi Adebayo who announced the end of the trial, said he was awarded N25 million.
