Empawa Africa Boss, Mr. Eazi accuses Bad Bunny of unlawful sample


Record label boss of Empawa Africa, Mr Eazi, has called out Puerto Rican rapper and singer, Bad Bunny for an alleged unlawful sample of a song by one of his Signee, Joeboy.

The singer claimed that the Latin musician is ripping off a song ‘Empty My Pocket’ by his artist, Joeboy.

“Yo @sanbenito you need to tell your lawyers to stop messing around and clear that Joeboy rip off on your album.” Mr Eazi wrote.

In a follow-up tweet, Mr Eazi shared a link to the song on Bad Bunny’s Youtube channel and Joeboy’s ‘Empty My Pocket’ song that was sampled by the Latin singer.

Joeboy’s “Empty My Pocket” was released in June 2021, while Bad Bunny’s “Enséñame a Bailar,” released in May 2022.

Bad Bunny who recently brought a slice of his homeland to the 2023 GRAMMYs stage with a pair of tracks from his latest album, ‘Un Verano Sin Ti,’ which made history as the first Spanish-language album nominated for Album Of The Year is yet to respond to the accusation.
