That is why when Nigerian singer, Tekno dropped his new single, Jogodo, a lot of people expected him to give credit to the musc veterans, Danfo Driver, as it was glaring his inspiration came from them. It appears he didn't as the group has called him out on the issue.

In a brief interview after their performance at the recently held Headies awards, they expressed displeasure towards Tekno's sampling of their Kpologo song without seeking permission. According to Mountain Black, they deserve some credit for their intellectual property and they are willing to go to any length to get it from the singer who they claim didn't do right by them.
