Nigerian singer, Timi Dakolo, has slammed the All Progressives Congress for using his song without his permission.

Timi Dakolo’s hit song, ‘Great Nation’ was played at a point during the presidential primaries of the ruling party on Tuesday night.

Displeased with the act, Timi Dakolo in a post on Twitter questioned why APC would use his song in a rally or campaign without his permission.

Timi Dakolo noted that this is the second time APC would be doing such a thing, adding that it’s one of those things that people do and get away with in Nigeria.

He wrote: “Why  Use an Artist Song without their permission in a rally or campaign.The things people get away with in this Country called Nigeria.  Actually this is the second time”

Timi Dakolo’s tweet stirred mixed reactions from some Nigerians:
