Music videos of Jacky Gosee's unauthorized version of Abraham Afewerki's "Meley" are removed from Youtube after the Abraham Afewerki Foundation For Music (AAFM), a non-profit organization entrusted with maintaining his intellectual property said Jacky used the song without consent from Abraham's family or the group. As a result, they removed Jacky's song from Youtube on grounds of copyright violation and plan on taking legal action against the pop singer.

The following is AAFM's statement on the issue:

YouTube postings featuring Jacky Gosee’s unauthorized version of Abraham Afewerki’s Meley are all removed from YouTube. This includes video posted by Jacky Gosse himself. The video he posted was supported by advertisements generating revenue for himself piggybacking on somebody else’s original work. Thanks to those who helped us with cleaning up the infringing videos. Any more postings of the song will be dealt with in the same manner.

The issue is not closed and our lawyers are working the matter.

Again we reiterate the fact that this has nothing to do with Jacky Gosee the person, but it all has to do with the larger issue of copyright violations and that is what we are after.

We respect Jacky Gosee as an artist and we wish him well but one has to take responsibility for their actions and he will be required to do so in this case.
