Remember how Mercy Chinwo had written to Obidiz, through her attorney Pelumi Olajengbesi, demanding that he remove his song, “Mercy Chinwo,” from all digital music platforms because it had disparaged her by using her name and picture in secular music audio and video. She warned that doing otherwise would result in judicial action, including asking the court to impose N2 billion in damages on him.
On Saturday, Obidiz responded on his Twitter page, claiming he was just singing a track and hadn’t killed anyone. He described the song’s subject as a woman he encountered. “Na song I sing I no kill person,” he said in his note. Mercy Chinwo for church o but for club na Cardi B set’ Talks about a girl I met, na she I sing about, but una wan crucify me,”
The aforementioned song, “Mercy Chinwo,” which recounts the tale of a rebellious church girl, was released in 2023. Obidiz is “required to” openly and personally apologize to Mercy Chinwo and remove the song.
