Read the full statement below:

"The management of Sonnie Badu wants to state categorically that Minister Sonnie Badu is an Internationally recognized gospel artiste and a member of music senior , UK who respects the gifts of others including musical gifts. We acknowledge the gifts and difficulties in being a song writer and getting recognition for your work.

Due to this, before we release a song we take the extra efforts to research and do due diligence before songs are written and released, hence giving credits to everybody who contributes to Sonnie’s musical works.

The chorus for “Wonder God” was heard by the team in Maryland 5 years ago from Mummy GO, wife of the head of Redeemed Christian Church Fraternity (Pastor Bayo Adeyekunu’s sister) and so when the team wanted to use the chorus, we did a research and we learnt Mummy GO was the owner of the song. We sought her permission and Pastor Bayo’s to use the chorus of the song and he obliged.

We reiterate that never in our research did we learn that one Soji Israel was the owner of the chorus of the song, until a year after “Wonder God” became a hit that Soji Israel contacted the Smarttys Management Team.

We listened to him, apologized and explained to Soji that we had no knowledge of him being the owner of the chorus of the song “Wonder God”. We opined that Soji provide valid documentation that he is the owner of the chorus the song, so we compensate him.

About a month ago, Soji Israel met the Smartty’s team and Minister Sonnie in the USA and we had an extensive talk; in view of our discussion plans are advanced to compensate Soji should he provide the CAE documents proving the he has registered rights to the chorus of “Wonder God”. Soji’s prove of YouTube as his source of documentation is not enough prove of registration.

The management of Minister Sonnie Badu wishes to state emphatically that we are waiting for legal documents of registration pertaining to the chorus of “Wonder God” from Soji, after which we will give him the due recognition."
