Spotify takes down Goya Menor song, ‘Ameno’


Widely used audio streaming app, Spotify has taken down the trending Ameno Amapiano Remix (Chill with the Big Boys) due to copyright and licensing issues.

The viral jam was done by Nigerian hypeman, Goya Menor and Ghanaian record producer, Nektunez who borrowed a leaf from the classical ‘Ameno’ track owned by Era.

Owing to the fact that Menor’s remix had lyrics of the original song, it is therefore expected that the owner(s) of the track be contacted and subsequently give consent for the song to be used by the hypeman.

Amapiano remix received a massive boost owing to viral TikTok challenges and has subsequently turned out to be one of the most played by Nigerians at the moment.
