Rema, on Friday, called out the disc jockey for putting out ‘For You’, their collaboration, without his consent.

The Mavin Records-signed singer said he was neither paid nor informed about the track’s impending release.

Rema had further demanded that the song be taken down.

“With all due respect chief! Dropped my old record without due process? I’m not happy at all,” Rema had said.

In a statement, DJ Neptune replied that he had shared the potential release date with Rema’s handlers.

He shared screenshots showing his chats as well as an email where an agreement was sent in response.

“Rema’s record was obtained and the right steps were taken. I did give the instruction to my legal representative to forward a collaboration agreement to Rema’s manager and team, as earlier specified,” DJ Neptune said.

“Upon same, my lawyer was contacted by a licensing officer of Rema’s Label for negotiations and clearance. Terms were agreed upon on 24 November 2021. The execution copy was to be sent in on November 25, 2021.

“I was contacted that Rema had requested that the said song be flagged down on the account of non-notice.

“I reached out to Rema’s manager and team to explain situations of things to them and also that the said composition could not be flagged down at that time as that would amount to flagging down the entire album.”

Neptune said he was later told that details on the final agreement were not properly circulated by Rema’s manager.

“I am not in any way upset with Rema as it is obvious that information was not passed across to him through his available channels,” the disc jockey added.

“As a respectable human being, I only felt it was just normal for me to follow due process in anything I do and that was the step taken.”
