Sunny Neji, a highlife performer, has returned to the music world after what seems to be a protracted absence. The singer is back with “Pour Me Water.” In terms of major singles like “Oruka,” “Ikebe,” “Lovi Dovi,” and “Abosede,” Sunny Neji is a household name in Highlife music and the industry as a whole. His effect and contribution over the years are undeniable.
Sunny has been active behind the scenes despite taking a brief break from the music world. Recently, the Musical Copyright Society Nigeria (MCSN) announced the appointment of businessman Matthew Ohio, musicians Sunny Neji and Asha ‘Gangali’ Fapohunda, and veteran musicians to its board of directors.
The MSCN was established in 1984 as a collective association of writers, composers, arrangers, and music publishers. Its responsibilities include managing and defending the members’ and affiliates’ intellectual property rights as well as handling the collection and distribution of fees and other financial benefits.
The action followed the general council of the MCSN’s recent approval of them. Additionally, it occurs three months after the Nigerian Copyright Commission renewed the functioning license of the collective management organization.
Additionally, Neji pledged to “do my best to add value to MCSN and indeed the industry at large.” It looks like he’s doing just that with “Pour Me Water.” Listen to it below:
