He went on to say that he has contacted his legal team on the matter though was quick to state that he this willing to resolve this matter amicably with Tommy without going through the courts of law which he said would be time consuming on both parties.
He however proposed that this can only be achieved if Tommy D removes the song from his reverbnation account and other websites.
