Hailed from UmarKot, singer Nirmala Maghani, who accused Zulfiqar Jabbar Khan aka Xulfi for stealing her melody, sent a legal notice to Coke Studio 14’s producer worth 100 million.
According to Express Tribune, Coke Studio’s PR management confirmed receiving a legal notice by Nirmala.
“We have received a notice last evening and our legal team will respond to it through the correct channels in due course. As such, we are constrained to limit our responses in deference to the legal process initiated by Ms Maghani,” the statement read.
Moreover, the report shared the claims made by Nirmala in the legal notice.
“That as per the copyright laws you don’t have the right to telecast/broadcast or upload on YouTube the said song unless you have obtained permission from my client as it’s made based on notes and composition of my client. That you are hereby instructed that you should apply [for] and obtain permission or license from my client and unless said is granted to you please remove the song from every social media website, YouTube and from [the] album of Coke Studio 14 as it is infringing upon the rights of my client,” the notice read.
“Xulfi must cease and desist from using the composition of the “client” in Tu Jhoom and give an undertaking in writing, not complying with which within seven days will give the client the right to take further action under any and all jurisdictions,” the notice further stated.
