“People sent the song to me. And when I checked, Selebobo had used the trombone melodies that I played in there.
“And so, I contacted my publishers in South Africa and they are in talks,” Jay Q said.
He has also disclosed that he is ready to pursue the case in court and would only back down if Selebobo decides to withdraw the song of share the proceeds from the song on a 50-50 ratio.
