Claim For Song Title 'Popori' Gets Messier Btw Cynthia Morgan And Queen Ure



Few months ago, SoulE's estranged wife, Queen Ure had gotten a court order restraining Cynthia from using the title of one of her songs named popori, a title Queen Ure claims she solely has a right to.

As the fight for the word 'Popori' gets messier, Cynthia says she is not in any way ready to drop the song title because it does not belong to Ure or anyone and instead, she is making plans of shooting a video for the popular song.

The 'I'm taken' crooner also said instead of Ure ‘hating’ she would have expected her to support a growing artiste like her.

“My song, Popori, is still out and I am shooting the video for it very soon. Ure does not have anything on me and I don’t have any case with her. Popori is my song. I produced the song and came up with the title. I am from Edo State and I have been hearing the word Popori from my childhood. It was funny when she said that she was the one that invented the word popori and holds the copyright. She cannot even use a copyright for the word. If she had told me that she trademarked the word, then it would have been a separate thing. Even if she trademarked the word, our songs have two different spellings.

So if she takes the case to a court, I am sure they would say she is being funny. It is just as I bear Cynthia and I decide to trademark the name if someone else spells hers as ‘Synthia;’ I cannot sue the person because they are two different spellings. It is funny to me because it is like someone saying they invented the word love and no one else should use it. I don’t have any problem with Ure and I am not scared of her. We don’t have any case. If everyone should do what she did to me, then it means my fellow artistes would be suing themselves over songs like Azonto, Shoki, Caro, and the likes. I think it is a funny situation. Instead of her being a ‘hater,’ she should be supporting the newer generations of artistes and feel proud that I used the word, popori. It doesn’t even make sense to me," she argued.
