Will.I.Am Sues Pharrell for Stealing His Name

Will.i.am has fired back at Pharrell in a lawsuit, claiming Pharrell is a serial thief who steals names for profit — including Will’s.

Pharrell has launched a YouTube channel called I AM OTHER.  After Will fired off a cease and desist letter, demanding that Pharrell stop using “I AM,” Pharrell filed a lawsuit, asking a judge to protect his right to use the “I AM” moniker.

Now we’ve obtained new legal docs, in which Will.i.am is countersuing Pharrell, claiming the dude has a long, copycat history.  Will.i.am notes … Pharrell co-founded a record label called Star Trak Entertainment — sound familiar?

But wait, there’s more.  Will also notes Pharrell is being sued by Marvin Gaye’s family for allegedly ripping off “Got to Give it Up” for his summer smash “Blurred Lines.”

And there’s still more.  Will claims Pharrell also tried to register the trademark, Pink Slime — which Will says is similar to Slime, owned by Mattel.  That’s a stretch, right?

As for using “I AM,” Will points out it will confuse people because they’re both on the same record label and they have similar musical styles.

As for what Will wants … $$$.

The performances started with Divine Band that was followed by comedy skits before Aziz Azion took to the stage. But soon after he had stepped on stage, the light drizzles picked up intensity turning into light showers. None of that dampened Aziz’s performance, who took revelers through his classics such as Oxygen, Nkumira omukwano among others.

Other performers that had been scheduled for yesterday were then added onto today’s line up, ensuring quite a mouth watering climax to the carnival.

Revellers having a good time

The carnival continues today with John Blaq, Feffe Bussi, David Lutalo, Fik Fameica, Pallaso amd comedians Maulana&Reign, Talkers and Mighty Family.

Afrigo headlines Fusion auto spa’s Carnival on day-one, Femeika set for day-2

Published

By Staff Writer

One can rightfully refer to Afrigo band as music’s equivalent of the pyramids; the band has been around for about forever, yet remains an unshakable towering presence within the industry and is such an attraction appealing to all generations.

All this and more was on display yesterday night when the band headlined Fusion Auto Spa’s first of the three-day Fused Eco Fest Carnival, a celebration of the joint’s 10 years since it opened doors to Ugandans.

With all the legends in the house such as Moses Matovu, Joanita Kawalya, Racheal Magoola, Herman Ssewanyana on the percussion among others, the band took revelers through the hits that have come to define the music industry for decades. Only those rhythmically challenged stayed on their seats.

In an industry where as soon as a new bar opens doors the old one is relegated to the history books, Fusion auto spa has strongly maintained relevance attracting a wide range of patrons, which in perspective warranted such a celebration not for one day but three, being opened by the best band in Uganda, Afrigo.

Day two is an all-day affair with lots of activities during the day selections by resident deejays, swimming, bouncing castles, Amazon bonfire etc climaxing into the night with a host of renowned comedians, and musicians headlined by Fik Femeica.
