Aramide Singer denies copying Rihanna in song

The singer corrected that the concept of her song, ‘Funmi lowo' was her idea, contrary to claims that she copied Rihanna.

Afro-soul singer, Aramide has denied claims that she copied Rihanna in her song, ‘Funmi lowo'.

According to the singer, the song, which reportedly bore a similarity to Rihanna's ‘Bitch better have my money'  track was all her idea.

She stated this in an interview published by Punch News on Saturday, November 26, 2016.
“I released my album, ‘Suitcase,’ on Tuesday. I am very happy about the success it is recording and about the fact that my songs are topping charts.
"I have been in this business longer than a lot of people know and at every point, something significant happened.
"To set the records straight, I did not get the concept of my song, ‘Funmi lowo,’ from Rihanna’s ‘Bitch Better Have my Money.’
"I think the reason people may think so is because of my chorus. I released the song because I have noticed that it is easy for people to relate with a song they have heard before.
"I put the song out and it worked."
On the marital front, Aramide opined that a good sex life is very important in the success of a marriage.
She is also glad to have a supportive husband, who she claims has an interest in seeing her excel in her music career.
“I am very lucky that my husband is very supportive and he wants me to succeed.
"I am still trying to balance my role as a singer and a wife but so far so good, it has been great.
"When I got married, my career took a different turn; I became more focused and knew what I was doing.
"My marriage has not affected my fan base. As a married woman, I am more focused and I have the desire to do good music and make more money.
"A married woman should have sex with her husband as many times as possible because it makes everything go smoothly in the marriage. It is very important."

The singer ventured into music in 2006 following her participation in the Nigeria Breweries sponsored talent hunt programme,"Star Quest".
She is currently signed to Baseline Records after penning a deal with the music label on September 9, 2014.
