Nigerian singer, Ewa Cole has filed a 300M lawsuit against actress and filmmaker, Funke Akindele and music executive, JJC Skillz, alleging copyright infringement of her songs in the popular movie, “She Must Be Obeyed.”

He lamented that it is a pity that tricycle is now beyond the reach of the common man.

The man wrote…

“Keke is now sold for 2.6 Million Nigerian Naira and 1 dollar is now 1,800 Naira. Things are getting worse every hour of the day. Is this how we are going to continue?

The man also claimed that the price surge could be because of the scarcity of US Dollars.
