Nigeria's music idol Tuface Idibia popularly known as 2Baba, has waded into the current crisis rocking COSON.

The on-going leadership crisis in COSON has over time been taking new dramatic dimensions one day after another. Few days back, parties involved, dragged themselves to a police station in Ikeja, Lagos, where all manner of shame was exhibited.
In a letter of urgent appeal to the Director General of Nigerian Copyright Commission, for action on the matter, Tuface commended the commission for its courageous position on the lingering crisis at the Copyright Society of Nigeria (COSON). Tuface also went on to mention that it is quite unfortunate and disheartening that a simple call for accountability and transparency has degenerated into relentless media attack, harassment and intimidation of those who called for the accountability.

COSON according to Tuface, "was built by the collective efforts of like-minded industry stalwarts and it will be a shame to see all of the hard work that has gone into building the society, go down the drain. The personal interest of a few should not supersede the collective interest of generality of members and overall well-being of the society."

Tuface also seized the opportunity of the letter communication to urge the NCC Director-General to engage the Inspector General of Police with a view to setting "records straight and reversing the
the embarrassing and dangerous scenario where Mr Efe Omorogbe and Mr Joel Ajayi, Chairman and Members of the commission-recognised board acting well under the directive of the regulator, are now being harassed, intimidated, demonised and prosecuted by a sister government agency-
The Nigerian Police.

And then Tuface dropped the bomb, in the last paragraph, when he declared that, " Nigeria is a nation of laws that are supposed to be no respecter of persons and we, the industry stakeholders and regular
citizens have only the government to turn to for protection at perilous times like these where our CMO is under siege and our commonwealth is treated by Chief Tony Okoroji and his agents who for personal ends, continue to demonstrate deep contempt for regulation and the call for accountability."

Will Tuface intervention solve the COSON CRISIS? Only time will tell.
