The songs include Extravaganza, Lenga, Intro, Favorite song and Ukiwa mbali which were produced in 2019.

“The plaintiff co-composed and performed in Extravaganza and Ukiwa Mbali together with the performing in the background vocals for Bensoul’s song Favorite song,” she claimed.

Copy rights

Asige further alleges that they had an agreement of having the copy rights for co-producing and writing songs for the group but lost all her rights after the fallout.

“The plaintiff communicated her reservations on the mentioned agreement with the first defendant and requested to discuss and negotiate the particulars but they never met for negotiations,” furthered Asige.

Asige left the group in 2020 and was nominated for the senate seat by Orange Democratic Movement(ODM) after the August polls.
