“My lawyers have written to them, so you would hear the details at the right time because they have money”.
Asked if he taking the legal action just for financial gains, Rex said; “They have appropriated my song and that is my property. As for me, my music is my property and I value every song I produce at 1million dollars. So if you take my music and you don’t tell me, you have stolen my one million dollar”, Rex emphasized.
Meanwhile, Rex Omar is currently in court with beverage manufacturing company Joy Industries for using a part of his hit song “Da da di da” to promote or advertise its product, Joy Dadi Bitters without his permission.
