On Monday, 6th February 2023 Mr. Eazi took to his Twitter account to call out Latino megastar Bad Bunny for infringing on the intellectual property of EmPawa artist Joeboy.

According to him, Bad Bunny recorded a Joeboy song without going through the standard clearance process with the label and the artist.

“Yo @sanbenito you need to tell your lawyers to stop messing around and clear that Joeboy rip-off on your album,” the tweet reads.
